Other than nostalgia of the older generations who remember how fashionable speaking Italian was in their youthful days... I am not too sure what use there is for Italian language these days?
The Human Rights Committee said on Wednesday that Italy “failed to respond promptly to various distress calls from the sinking boat, which was carrying more than 400 adults and children”.
European countries often use poor countries for call center work in their own language.
Sometimes when I call German IT help desks I get Namibians or German Brazilians who pick up the phone.
Language proficiency in Italian could provide some work for Mogadishu youth.
In both cases of inbound and outbound calls, customers shall be informed of the place where the call center operator is physically located. Moreover, in case of inbound calls, customers shall have the right to choose to be assisted by an Italian call center. This provision has the clear purpose to favor the Italian national market.
In case of failure to comply with the above depicted requirements, a sanction equal to EUR10,000 for each day of non-compliance might apply.
Using Somalia's colonial past to strengthen ties with Italy can only be a good decision. Italy didn't have many colonies and there would be a good chance for trade links/deals in the future. Italy may also invest more in Somalia. More exposure to foreign languages can only help Somalis too, any sort of access to education is ultimately beneficialFarmaajo's regime is obsessed with dragging the country backwards and now they have resurrected Italy's soft power in Somalia.
What kind of despicable clown would bring back a lame Colonial language that has no relevance or use outside of Italy. He even sent a team of Somali doctors (that are desperately needed in Somalia) to help his Colonial Italian masters combat Covid-19.
