The annual Somali Investment Summit (SIS) is a dynamic platform where investors and businesses can network with policymakers and discuss investment opportunities available in Somalia's growing economy. The SIS will facilitate access to crucial information on the investment opportunities and the economic trends driving Somalia's and the wider Horn of Africa's phenomenal economic growth. According to the IMF, Somalia's economy has consistently grown in recent years with real GDP increasing by 3.7% per annum since 2014, one of the fastest rates of economic growth in Africa.
