MOGADISHU, (Horn Observer) Somali Government has on Tuesday handed over a newly constructed center to the Somali workers, which officials will play key role in finding skilled employees.

The Somalia’s Ministry of Labor signed the contract to build the new site with the Turkish authorities last year aiming to provide office for the Somali labor unions. The piece of the land in Howlwadag district, which was constructed  with two story building for the benefit of the Somali workers, was previously owned by the Ministry of education, officials said.

An official opening ceremony for cutting the ribbon of the  new construction site for the Somali Labour Unions, was attended by first deputy speaker of the parliament in Somalia Abdiweli Ibrahim Mudey, the minister of labour and social affairs of Somalia Salah Ahmed Jama, members from the country’s civic union and the heads of the Turkish companies Hakish and TIKA who had contracted the building of the union’s center.


Salah Ahmed Jama, minister of labour and social affairs said that this center will play a key role in finding a skilled and well trained employees as the government will be developing plans to create more jobs in near future.

"The center will be used to produce more trained employees to o reduce the number of unemployment and create more job opportunities for the youth” Minister Salah Ahmed Jama said.

SOCUTU chairman Mohamed Osman Haji who received the site on behalf of the Somali workers said "the construction of this center would have a such a great importance especially for the country’s labour unions who had extremely needed to find such site.”

However, representatives of the other labor union centers including FESTU officials were not present at the hand over ceremony.
