333 views

On 16 September 2013, a high-level conference entitled "A new deal for Somalia" was held in Brussels. Somalia's eight-year transition ended in September 2012 with the peaceful handover to a new Federal Government. The conference, co-hosted by the Somali Federal Government and the European Union, aimed to sustain the positive momentum in the country and to ensure that it stays on the path to stability and peace, bringing prosperity to its people. It 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. José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, Catherine Ashton, High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice-President of the EC, and Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, President of Somalia, delivered speeches during the closing session of the conference.
