Notably hosting the 2nd Italia-Somalia Business and Trade Forum and the 1st Somalia Private Sector Partnership Meet – the Somalia Economic Conference has been endorsed by H.E. Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, President of the Federal Republic of Somalia, during H.E.’s Presidential State visit to Italy in February 2023, as well as by H.E. Jibril Abdirashid Haji, Minister of Commerce and Industry of the Federal Government of Somalia, during a round table at the UNIDO Investment and Technology Promotion Office in Rome (ITPO Italy) at the presence of the Italian Government and private sector.
