Hargeysa, Somaliland, April 14, 2007 (SL Times) – The Somaliland livestock minister has announced on Monday that an agreement on livestock exports has been reached between Somaliland and a Saudi Arabian businessman. The businessman will export 2,000,000 heads of cattle, camels or goats per year.

The Somaliland livestock minister said at a meeting that the agreement between the government and the businessman, who goes by the name Sulayman Sa'id al-Jabiri, has two provisions:

1. The businessman should buy 2,000,000 heads of livestock - camels, cattle or goats from Somaliland every year and export them to Saudi Arabia.

2. Building of a quarantine camp for livestock meant to undergo health checks in Berbera that meet international standards. The camp will have the capacity of keeping 5,000,000 heads of cattle, camels or goats and it will be funded by the businessman. The construction of this camp will begin at the end of this week.

The Somaliland livestock minister also mentioned that the sale of livestock to Yemen will remain as it is.

The minister noted that this agreement would be useful for exporting Somaliland livestock to Saudi Arabia, where a ban used to exist on livestock from Somaliland.
