The President was flanked by several members of the cabinet who were amongst his entourage, heads of Togdeer region and Burao district, intellectuals, politicians and officials of the Somaliland Development Fund and other guests.

The ministers of transport and development of roads and that of planning and national development who spoke at the function explained how it was necessary for the nation to work together to work on the economic infrastructure in order to achieve progress.

The President thanked the ministries and agencies working on the issue of rehabilitating the highway for embarking on the project and called for its implementation to be swift and expeditious.
