Somalia has invited Qatari businessmen to invest in the country in several sectors including agriculture, livestock and fish, which would create more jobs for Somali youths.
Speaking during a meeting with Qatar Chamber (QC) First Vice Chairman Mohamed bin Twar al Kuwari, Somalia’s Minister of Labour and Social Affairs Sadik Hiris Warfa hailed Qatar’s cooperation with his country.
Both leaders discussed ways to enhance bilateral co-operation between the two countries.
Sadik noted that his visit aims to discuss enhancing trade relations and presenting investment opportunities available in Somalia and identifying cooperation in labourers’ qualification and developing their skills.
Kuwari stressed that Qatari private sector highly welcomes enhancing cooperation with its Somalian counterpart as well as establishing joint enterprises for the benefit of both sides.
