The five economic priorities for the new president

The presidential honeymoon will be short-lived and the euphoria that greeted president Hassan Sheikh’s election victory will fade away very soon. When the dust is settled, he will find a country that has ground to a halt and an in-tray full of issues: from resurgent terrorism; severe and catastrophic drought and hunger that is costing lives and livelihoods; poisoned political landscape; resetting Somalia’s diplomatic posture; delivery on political and constitutional priorities; to re-building the structural foundation of economic reform. Separating the delivery of the country’s economic priorities from the political maze he found himself in will no doubt stress test the new president’s leadership skills to the limit.

At the UN Security Council’s Ministerial on Food Security today in New York, Secretary of State Antony Blinken announced nearly $215 million in additional humanitarian assistance to address the global food security crisis, which has been exacerbated by Russia’s war on Ukraine and its corresponding impact on global markets.
