Interesting. What is cooking now?

My guess, formalizing the trade between them. They need the corridor more than ever and informal trade isn’t gonna cut it from here onwards. We have already seen the insurance of vehicles conundrum solved, now its the Wajaale trade post that needs some serious work on both sides.

They need something like the Moyale One Stop Border Post in Kenya that TMEA helped with. If thousands of vehicles are coming you need systems in place that can not only cope but reduce cargo clearance times.

Bal hada arintan cusub inoo qaadaa dhiga.

It looks like Abiy Ahmed has finally realised that Somaliland is too important to ignore. A welcomed change indeed.
