Very impressive...however, we know the majority of Djiboutiennes live in absolute poverty.
What is the Govt doing to improve the lives of the majority?

Undoubtedly there are economic and social hurdles to be overcome by the government. Djibouti -- like any other functioning sovereign country -- takes these challenges very seriously.

Though Djibouti has one of the highest per-capita income -- 24th richest country in Africa out of a total of 54 -- in the wider east-African region, it still faces a plethora of challenging issues, least of which is maintaining security and stability. Security takes a big dent from the budget, hence economic development (and equality) take a back seat to security.

We are still an economic and financial hub, meaning we are attracting immigrants from the region which add additional strain to the national budget. Therein lies the chasm of trying to do what is right by helping immigrants in a country with limited resources and residents who expect more from the government.

The underlying factors are addressed as follows:

- Electricity shortage is addressed head-on with the new dam in Ethiopia (GERD). This will alleviate some of the concerns of power outages.
- Geothermal, solar power and wind power are renewal energies Djibouti seeks to leverage in the next 5-7 years. Already there is funding for geothermal plant near Lac Assal.
- Water shortages are going to be a thing of the past now that MOU between Djibouti and Ethiopia to import water for free from Shinile Zone/Dira Dawa has been formalized by the parliament in Addis Ababa. Any excess water will be exported to the Middle-East for a premium -- a win-win for the people.
- Refugee repatriation program, in conjunction with the UNHCR, has been underway for couple of years now. Refugees who left north Somalia (Somaliland) are being resettled in Saylac-Lughaye districts.
- Diversifying the service economy by building additional ports to service Ethiopia, South Sudan and the hinterland of Africa is underway in the north of the country. There will be two additional ports, one in Tadjourah, the other in Dameerjog (exporting exclusively livestock) few miles from Doraleh. There is also a 5th port in the works.
- Many dispensaries and health clinics have been built throughout the country. Health and education services are a priority of the government. These programs are paying dividends with low infant mortality rate.

These are some of the policies the government is implementing to address high unemployment and income disparity.

Very illuminating....thanks. :up:
Post some pics of other towns and cities throughout Djibouti.
PS Why does Djibouti need such a large defense budget when there are thousands of foreign troops based in the country?

No doubt the city is well structured although the outskirts are a different story. Nonetheless it's getting better.

the term sheegato will only upset a sheegato.

The only jabuutawi in here for many years who stayed true to his country.
No man can tell me anything about jabuuti.

I do it for the love i have for that land with all its ugly sides and good sides.

thats the mark of a true wadani.

Not to be part of the boy scout unlike people in this rat hole that group together like chimps.

Yo jabuutawi, where about in jabuuti you from?
