The President of the Republic, His Excellency Ismail Omar Guelleh, honoured today, on Sunday, at camp lemonnier, the United States military base stationed in Djibouti, from his presence a signing ceremony under the djibouti first programme.

The “Djibouti first” programme consists of an economic partnership between the two countries, the driving force of which is that national private operators are given priority by the United States in Djibouti.

During the ceremony, it was pointed out that the United States of America allocates a budget of $ 25 million for the djibouti first programme.

There are already 4 companies companies which have obtained contracts under this first envelope.

The concession of these contracts was also made following the American announcement of the budget for the djibouti first programme.

The “Djibouti first” programme has demonstrated the multi-form and multisectoral nature of the partnership between the United States of America and the republic of Djibouti.

Indeed, our country does not only realize the feat of sheltering the only American military base on the black continent for almost 16 years, and it also maintains important civil and economic cooperation with the world’s leading power.

The Djibouti first programme is the perfect illustration of the privileged partnership that both countries have in the economic field.

In addition to the economic aspect, LA-American civil cooperation also extends to the social sphere, including through a budget of 4 billion francs that the us agency for International Development (USAID) makes available to our country.

The fight against unemployment and, above all, improving the employability of djiboutiens are the areas to which usaid affects most of the assistance it brings to our country in terms of social cooperation.
