The Pareto Efficiency model is a economic concept developed by an Italian economist Vilfredo Pareto. To
define the PE it’s an economic concept with application engineering social and economic science. In a
simplistic term the model or concept promotes equality in wealth distribution and economic efficiency.
Example of Pareto Ef iciency:
Given that an initial allocation of goods among a set of individuals, a change to a different allocation that
makes at least one individual better off without making any other individual worse off is called a Pareto
improvement. An allocation is defined as “Pareto efficient” or “Pareto optimal” when no further Pareto
improvements can be made. Of course, further improvements is possible in Somaliland if not more, however,
I am using this term and concept to explain that the economic development is in line with justice, and national
wealth is distributed amongst regions of Somaliland in a symmetrical approach, in a way that meeting the
principles of the Pareto Efficiency Model
We know well there would be no progress without good gasp of economic development in line with
education investments as well as health, combined with balanced wealth distribution. As economist or
average educated somalilander, let’s me examine Mr Silanyo achievement so far in relation to the
aforementioned aspects. In this regard Mr Silanyo has achieved the following;
When president Silanyo took over in mid 2010, the government coffers were empty not to mention a huge debt to
date the Kulmiye administration has reversed the negative financial situation through stringent corruption measures, enhanced
tax collection etc.
These endeavours of strict and transparent have enabled the central coffers to not only stabilize national funds but increase
the annual budget from $46M to $175 million dollars .
In relation to the increased revenue the government has:
1. Increased by 100% the salary of civil servants, Armed forces, Parliamentarians and cabinet
2. Removed from circulation the Gimbar (Somali) Currency in Toghdeer region where residents had suffered for along time.
3. Oil and Minerals exploration in the country.
4. Employed 6500 civil servants among them teachers, medical personnel etc
5 . Monumental infrastructures development including Airports, roads and central Government buildings .
Within the short period that the Kulmiye government has been in power a number of important milestones have
been attained in the education sector, namely:
1. Availing education to all by making primary school education free thus an increase in the numbers of new
registrations as well as reduction in drop-outs.
2. An increase of 3000 trained teachers in public schools at both primary and secondary levels.
3. 147 new primary and middle schools.
4. Ensured the quality of education through the establishment of a higher education commission that monitors
the curriculums of secondary schools and universities.
5. The solicitation and disbursement of scholarships for education in foreign universities.
The Kulmiye government having stressed on the development of the health sector has achieved:
1. The opening of a fully equipped regional hospital at Gabile as well as the construction (Ongoing) of a 235 bed
hospital in Hargeisa.
2. The recruitment of 900 medical personnel who include doctors, nurses, pharmacist and midwives.
3. Increased the emergency response of Erigavo, Borame Gabile and Berbera through the provision if extra ambulances.
1. Since livestock remains the economic thus livelihood backbone of the nation the Kulmiye government has
concentrated in ensuring that the pasturelands are free of diseases thus managed to utilize the services of
80 veterinary medicine teams for inoculations.
3. The improved livestock health has proceeded with the country having exported the biggest number of livestock.
This development has also been made possible by various improvements made to the infrastructure and personnel of Berbera port.
Water is one of the most essential commodities for both human and animal life and its sufficient acquisition has
remained one of the main focuses of the Kulmiye government. To this effect the following has been achieved
1. The addition of 50 water boreholes while a similar number is in process.
2 23 water reservoirs constructed in all the regions within a diversified water installation projects ongoing in
30 trading centres of Awdal, salel, Maroodi-jeeh, Toghdeer, Sahil, Sool and sanaag regions respectfully
3. At the same time an EU funded project is set to start providing sufficient water in Hargeisa, Erigavo, Wajale and Burao towns respectively.
Going back to the article title, the majority decent people already came to conclusion that the president is fair
and square with his sound judgment, and that he’s a great economist as well as politicians with substance. Mr
Silanyo has made a great improvement within the short distance as president. Furthermore, if not
exaggerating Mr Silanyo economic models can be compared with that Vilfredo Pareto with his justice and
wealth distribution. What matter today to President Silanyo that the majority of the somalilander willsay
that absolutely Mr Silanyo has made the average somalilander better off without making anyone worse off,
and there fore his economic model is well within the developed world economic models. My message to the
Siilaanyo critics is this; the average somalilander knows that Silanyo delivered indisputably his promises and
more, and that you have no alternative economic policies in place, and in the absence of substances, you have
nothing to tell the public.
Few days ago I was presenting the government achievement to a prominent British MP (Conservative Party)
who also happened to be former economist. The MP comments were very positive about the Government
achievements so far, given the level of our GDP and meagre resource available. She informed me that
Somaliland is on the right track to build strong economy based on Livestock export, and future oil and gas
exploration would enhance the livelihood of the average somalilander in the foreseeable future provided we
continue in this pace as young progressive country. Therefore, the MP comments encouraged me to write this
letter, and I willreiterate my support to Mr President Silanyo Government and ruling party Kulmiye for their
achievements. As nationalistic nation we should also rely behind any leader that can make things happen
whether it’s Mr Silanyo or other any future good leaders that succeed him and fellow his social and
economic models, and therefore, Pareto Efficiency is the way forward for our nation to strive. Well done Mr
President A Silanyo you’re characterised as servant of the nation not the master of the nation
