Historical Perspective

Puntland State of Somalia was established in 1998 through a consultative process, which is an integral part of Somalia. It is the vision of Puntland to have “a strong secure Puntland State of Somalia Federal System, preserving its Islamic and cultural heritage, developing human resource, preserving the environment, and exploiting natural resources equitably and sustainably”

Based on the above vision Puntland government has campaigned for power on a platform of reforming all sectors of government, including security apparatus, civil service, public finance management and improving social services in order to achieve good governance, democratization and economic development.
