Ethio-Somali region’s acting president, Mustafa Mohammed, Somaliland’s president Muse Abdi and representatives of AbuDabi fund have attended the project launch ceremony in Hargessa, according to a report by FanaBC.
“Berbera Corridor,” as it is dubbed, is a collaboration project between Somaliland, a Dubai Company and the government of Ethiopia.

The port expansion project is expected to be completed in a year. When that happens, the capacity of the port is expected to be increased by 50 %.
