Somalia Breaks Ground On National Data Centre
The centre will offer data storage, recovery and cybersecurity services.
Somalia’s Federal Communications and Technology Minister Jama Khalif has officially launched the start of construction of a national data centre in Mogadishu.
According to the communications ministry, the national data centre will offer data storage, recovery and cybersecurity services, and aims to elevate Somalia’s capabilities in managing and securing critical digital assets. It is being built by the local Ta’meer Group.
The data centre is designed to facilitate the efficient electronic delivery of government-to-government (G2G), government-to-citizen (G2C) and government-to-business (G2B) services, enhancing accessibility and streamlining communication between various government agencies through a common platform.
“This state-of-the-art facility forms the cornerstone of modern infrastructure, addressing the burgeoning need for hosting and digital data processing,” said Mustafa Yasin, general manager of Somalia’s National Communications Authority (NCA) at the groundbreaking ceremony on 15 November.
