The Ministry of Telecommunications and Technology Dr. Abdiweli Abdulahi Sufi, in a press released announced the unveiling of video conferencing technology and was successfully tested with a cabinet meeting attended remotely by all Somaliland ministers.

The statement from the Ministry of Technology added that it has been engaged in implementing technologies to ensure government continuity due to the COVID-19 global pandemic. The statement did not mention if the technology will be available to all government workers.

The new platform unveiled by the Ministry of Telecommunication and Technology is from Microsoft and is part of the Office 365 offering.

Somaliland government has been behind the technology curve and does not offer online citizen services although the Minister of Technology Hon. Sufi has recently stated that his ministry is working on an e-government platform.
