The Horn of Africa Nation finally joined the East African Community as the bloc’s 8th Partner State on Tuesday after officially depositing her instrument of ratification of the Treaty of Accession with the EAC Secretary General at a ceremony held at the EAC Headquarters in Arusha, Tanzania.

Minister Jibril Abdirashid Haji Abdi, presented Somalia’s instrument of ratification to the EAC Secretary General, Hon. (Dr.) Peter Mathuki, completing the admission process in line with EAC Procedure for Admission of new members.
