Significantly this is also the first time that a I shall sign a Financing agreement as National Authorising Officer, representing the Federal Government of Somalia, and on Somali soil. The government has noted with a degree of satisfaction the results of the Mid Term Review of the cooperation with the EU and the increase in the allocation that has resulted from it.
