Port planned for Somaliland

Dubai: The republic of Somaliland is finalizing a huge port investment, boosting its efforts to serve as a trade hub between the African and Arab worlds.

Somaliland is finalising a multi-million dollar deal with a leading international operator to develop a port at Berbera, on the Gulf of Aden, bolstering the breakaway nation's bid to position itself as an export gateway for landlocked Ethiopia. The identity of the port operator has yet to be made clear.  [31/12/13]
