Somaliland’s Private Sector at a Crossroads: Political Economy and Policy Choices for Prosperity and Job Creation (2016) is the World Bank’s first comprehensive analysis of the private sector in Somaliland. The 90 page report takes stock of the evolution of the private sector over the past two decades, it identifies priority policy options as well as the necessary reforms that would enable the private sector to take advantage of opportunities. The report draws on a political economy lens to study how dynamics of power, interests and relationships between key (economic, social and state) actors and sociocultural contexts interplay and influence public policy and private sector activites. The report focuses on three sectors: enterprise, finance and government with a bundle of policy recommendations proposed for each. Overall the report emphasizes the need to formalize the private sector and build the capacity of civil servants to lead this formalization process. Doing so would, according to the World Bank, enable Somaliland’s economy to take advantage of opportunities, promote a climate that favours investments as well as job creation. In my attempt to review this report, I take the position of someone who has lived and worked in Somaliland for the past five years. I summarize the report’s main findings and explain how they resonate with my previous research experience on economic actors and dynamics in Somaliland.
