International conference on Somalia "A new deal for Somalia" with the participation of José Manuel Barroso
José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, participated in the International conference on Somalia entitled "A new deal for Somalia".
Somalia's eight-year transition ended in September 2012 with the peaceful handover to a new Federal Government. This conference aimed to sustain the positive momentum in the country and to ensure that it stayed on the path to stability and peace, bringing prosperity to its people. The conference brought together the international community and Somalia to endorse the so-called "Compact" – a key milestone of the process-, pledge support to enable its implementation and, above all, re-commit to this new political process.
This clip presents the closing speech by José Manuel Barroso.
