South West State of Somalia has selected Frontier Services Group (FSG) as the project management organisation for integrated air-land-sea logistics capabilities and advanced security management.
The initiative will include constructing a seaport, airport as well as residential areas and agricultural zones for the state’s Free Zone Investment Authority (FZIA) with the aim of creating jobs and stabilising the region for internally displaced persons and returning refugees to engage and invest in their homeland.
The projects are managed in order that citizens, entrepreneurs and investors are able to drive the economy of Somalia.
FSG executive chairman, Erik Prince says: “FSG has a proven track record of being able to manage complex projects across challenging terrains and is therefore perfectly placed to provide support for this important new project in Somalia.”
“With the team’s experience and expertise, FSG will provide the best possible logistics and security services to ensure that the project can operate safely and on time.”
President of the South West State of Somalia, His Excellency Sharif Hassan Sheikh Aden says: “South West State is preparing for international investment in infrastructure and local enterprise. We are coordinating efforts according to global standards and best practices.”
“FZIA, an official agency of the South West State Administration, will coordinate Government to be a ‘single window’ agency for promotion, contracting, and management of developmental projects, serving local citizens, entrepreneurs and investors, from small to medium to large scale, the economic drivers of the hopeful future of Somalia.”
