Each phase of the BFZ will start once the previous phase has achieved 85% occupancy. It will target a wide range of businesses including warehousing, logistics, traders and.

Further details of the BFZ will be concluded with Somaliland’s new government after the country’s elections, scheduled for 13 November.
