If we can ditch the pirate reputation. Even tho piracy is almost non existent now that's what other countries associate with us.View attachment 7628 Somalia could be next Singapore/Hong Kong ( our location is enough for trading and serving all these landlocked in Africa) this map displays our trade routes in medieval time. We were smart enough to take advance of our location. We can be the link between from India, china (heart of industry) and Africa home of raw materials.
@0117 asc sxb, I am here. No more negative energy, I just didn't appreciate the way some others in that thread were acting.
I have a few questions;
Why wasn't the port reconstruction/upgrades funded by Worldremit/Somtel/Somcable/Dahabshill etc? Then use private contractors from China or USA that will hire locals to build the project
Was the port neglected after 1994 conflict in SL?
The port was making A LOT of money right (way more than would be made in 30 yr revenue sharing period if port is used as much as it's predicted to be use) before 91, why didn't SL try to keep it running?
Why specifically use the UAE? It's hard to think DP World was the only that was interested in this?
