    The Somaliland government has banned the importing of chicken, eggs and fruit from outside the country.

    I wasn't crying I was just giving constructive criticism I don't know why you're so offended by it.

    I don't get it why would you ban food coming in?
    Isn't that bad logic especially during a drought ?:ayaanswag:

    It's a good policy but I think it's premature. There first needs to be a reliable and consistent domestic supply or the prices will just increase. Poultry market can easily be met but the challenge is the fruits & vegetables. Usually only during the rainy season is there enough food grown for the local market and the reoccurring failure of rains has made that harder. During the dry season and droughts, imports will need to supplement for that deficit until better irrigation mechanisms are put in place so the dependency on rain fed agriculture is greatly reduced.

    This will incentivize people to invest in improving local agricultural capacity.

    I agree that it's too soon for an import ban. Putting tariffs on imported produce would be a better solution.

    Wouldnt that spike the prices of food and lead people to go smuggling as that would be cheaper and undercut unnecessary taxes?
    Either way they shouldnt have done it during a famine.
