Somaliland Diaspora Agency
Establishing Official Diaspora Engagement Institution has been part of the political program of the incumbent political party, Kulmiye, and the commitment of the past Somaliland President, HE. Ahmed Mohamed Mohamud (Siilaanyo) during his campaign for the country’s leadership and thus became one of his first fulfilments after election in 2010.
The Somaliland Diaspora Agency (SLDA), was established on the basis of the presidential decree No JSM/M/DM/249/0133/08210 dated on 26/8/2010 as autonomous public body aligned to the Foreign Affairs Policy; and is based on the national constitutional article 90th for the coordination and cooperation of Somaliland Diaspora communities worldwide.
