A first hand account of DP World’s Somaliland operations


Wednesday April 11, 2018

Gulf News editor Omar Shariff gives us his first-hand account of the situation in Somaliland



DP World’s role in two African ports has drawn a lot of attention recently.

In Djibouti, the government illegally seized control of the Doraleh Container Terminal from a DP World-owned entity after the government lost in the Court of International Arbitration in London.

Then Somalia attempted to ban DP World’s operations at Berbera Port in Somaliland, a breakaway republic to the east. The attempt failed, and DP World is still working closely with the Somaliland government to develop the port into a major trade hub on the Horn of Africa.

Gulf News recently sent Omar Shariff, the Deputy GCC/Middle East Editor, to Somaliland to view the port and talk to Muse Bihi Abdi, the President of Somaliland, and Dr Sa’ad Ali Shire, the foreign minister.

Omar comes on Dirhams & Dollars to tell us about his experience visiting the country.
