The private sector is the backbone of Somaliland economy and the biggest employment generator. However, it has inherent limitations which limit its potential to expand and pool together capital in the form of shareholding. The Majority of Somaliland businesses are sole proprietorship, family owned and partnerships. There are few shareholding companies, who operate on the basis of mutual trust rather than systematic corporate governance frameworks where the rights of shareholders are protected. It is time that Somaliland private sector should operate in a formal framework where operations and investment are not only done on individual trust and clan linkages but internationally accepted formal corporate governance frameworks.

No one thinks that he would live enough to see when our peace-makers turn in to trouble-makers. The upper house of parliament, has no longer most privileged members, or engaged in its hot debates on issues affecting the lives of ordinary citizens. It’s effective, peace-making dispatches to remote hinterlands are not visible in the headlines, despite of recurring inter-clan hostilities. If they were once the symbol of security, consensus, and the glue that holds Somaliland together, today the reality tells you a different story.
