I agree 100%. Production of goods is whats gonna change puntland. Rather than these hotels and restraunts being sprung everywhere, factories and production of items need to be fast-trackedI wish Deni creates a site in Bosaso and says 'meeshani' waa 'aaga productionka' puntland and says. Meeshan keliya ayaa la tagi kara for production and industrial projects. Then we need to gather our loser diaspora who are sitting overseas and say, you will make millions by competing against the electricity providers and to come to puntland invest in electricity. We must show them, their will be customers for them because once we ban importers they will either need to create a factory or go out of business and if they go out of business, someone else will fill their place because the gap left behind will be filled to service the economy.
Let's Create a ring network. Production and Supplier sector will then have to fill all the gaps in the market. This will lead to a 'pasta factory', a 'rice' plant, a 'softdrink plant'. This will create thousands of jobs in Puntland. The importers will not like it but it has to be a government policy and we need to tell the importers we cannot develop our economy by relying on you just to 'buy' goods from dubai and bring it back, this doesn't create workers in puntland.
This will create workers only in dubai. They will be very angry about it, because their cost will increase because we must tell them, it's in puntland national interest that we have a booming internal economy and a minimal external economy. Their will be some things we need from the outside still but we should rely less and less as the years pass on.
shut up you weirdo. shiaism is not tolerated in puntland. do you slander the sahaba on your free time. are you a twelver. answer.This is a very good initiative and should have been done a long time ago-
The blue economy should be the main focus-
example Thailand exported $5.8 billion in 2017. from canned tuna, sardines, and etc.
remember few months ago Thai ship was seized in Thailand for illegal fishing in Puntland and double permissible catch.
Somali/Puntland waters are home to some of the richest fishing grounds in Africa.
We have airports, where could ship our products, we should sign up trading deals, with many countries.
Puntland could generate billions of $$ from fisho sector alone.
