Bustling seaport a sign of hope in a transitioning SomaliaListen /
The AU troops are helping to stabilize a country which did not have a functioning central government for more than two decades. But this year, a new Parliament was sworn in and a President inaugurated.
The winds of change are also pushing more ships into the seaport in the capital, Mogadishu, where there reportedly has been a rise in cargo vessels bringing goods—and revenue—to the country.
This week, the head of the UN's Department of Field Support (DFS), Ameerah Haq, paid a one-day visit to Somalia where she congratulated the new President on the political strides made.
