In particular the development of a free zone here in Somaliland and I am aware the government here is in the process of adopting a legislation and we shall follow that closely and I look forward to returning and bring with me my associates here so as to develop the private sector initiative from not only the united states but other countries as they try and work with the government of Somaliland to increase the potential of employment and what I hate to say taxes but overall to stimulate the economy of a country which has much potential.
