On an annual basis, the council develops the Somali Export Market Development Programme (SEMDP), which lists prioritized promotional events to guide its export market development activities.

The SEMDP is a reflection of joint efforts, both public and private sectors, in consolidating and enlarging Somali’s traditional export markets, Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) and European Union (EU) and diversifying into the new and emerging export market of Eastern Europe, North America, Asia, and the Rest of Africa.

Also, the council will help entrepreneurs access bank financing more easily as well as sustain their business after receiving fundings.

 

The objective of such extensive consultations are to minimize duplication of efforts by various stakeholders and to ensure focused export market development initiatives.
