Transport and logistics play a crucial role in Djibouti’s economic development. The country is actively developing routes and infrastructure to enhance connectivity, both domestically and internationally. New port services are being introduced to facilitate industrial development and trade, attract foreign investment and promote growth. Significant investment is being made to upgrade and expand the transportation infrastructure to support increased trade and logistics activities. In addition, Djibouti is investing in livestock facilities to encourage the legal and regulated trade of animals, tapping into its strategic location as a gateway for livestock exports in the region. These efforts collectively contribute to Djibouti’s position as a key transport and logistics centre in the region, driving economic opportunities and regional integration.
