MOGADISHU (HOL) - Germany has announced a $73 million aid package to Somalia over the next two years adding to increasing international aid to the Horn of Africa nation.

German ambassador to Somalia Anneth Gunther said Monday her government is upping its contribution to Somalia to support the recovery process.

“To support Somalia on its path, Germany is increasing its support in its development cooperation by $73 million over the next two years,” said Gunther.

Gunther made the announcement during an event mark the German Unity Day in Mogadishu.

“This increase, as was jointly agreed, will foster inclusive growth, skills development (through technical and vocational education and training) and urban infrastructure. Furthermore, Germany is engaging with a higher priority in rural development, agriculture and water management.”

The German diplomat noted her government was committed to ensuring the progress made so far in Somalia’s recovery process does not stagnate.

It aims to support maintaining the positive trajectory Somalia has taken in recent years,” she added

The funds, USAID said will also support Somali refugees within the region. It is estimated there are about 1 million Somali refugees within the Eastern Africa region
