They discussed numerous efforts to promote long-term socioeconomic development, emphasising the significance of inclusion and long-term planning to boost economic growth, support job creation, and reduce poverty in the population.
Investment in infrastructure, education, and healthcare is one of the sectors that both leaders saw as vital to the nation’s overall development and well-being. They recognised that these sectors play critical roles in a nation’s development and that coordinated efforts in these areas may boost human capital, assuring a brighter and more prosperous future for the people of Somalia and the IGAD member nations.
According to Minister Beenebeene, the engagement between Somalia and IGAD member nations would explore new measures to improve regional integration and strengthen connections for a brighter future. He also emphasised the significance of strengthening bilateral cooperation and developing programmes that promote prosperity and success for both Somalia and IGAD member nations.
