As Chief Executive Officer of Djibouti Sovereign Fund, I am pleased to welcome you to our website.
Djibouti Sovereign Fund (DSF) was established by Law n°075/AN/20/8ème L on the 29th of March 2020. DFS serves as an innovative instrument for the economic development of the country for both present and future generations. Therefore, it is fully compliant with the objectives of the country outlined in the “Vision 2035”.
DSF aims to contribute to the transformation of Djibouti into a commercial, digital, logistic, and port hub.To this end, we intend to use the investment of public resources as a driving mechanism and attract private investment around projects with high added value in order to optimize and enhance the national wealth for an appropriate diversification and increased competitiveness of the Djiboutian economy.
We also focus on improving the performance of public enterprises and their compliance with international standards of governance.
Through the creation of DSF, the Government of Djibouti has sought to be innovative by pooling assets such as national companies (Electricité de Djibouti, Djibouti Télécom, Great Horn Investment Holding) as well as recurring revenue streams from strategic activities. The key objective is to mobilize relevant resources and create a leverage effect in order to meet the pressing needs of the country, particularly in the energy, infrastructure, industry, fisheries, tourism and financial services sectors, and therefore contribute to Djibouti’s economic development, including the strengthening of human capital, and the creation of intergenerational savings.
In this context and in support of best practices, such as the Santiago Principles and the Equator Principles, DSF wishes to become one of the best sovereign wealth funds regarding governance and transparency so as to design and implement responsible and sustainable investments in Djibouti, as well as in the Horn of Africa and the world.
To this end, we encourage national and international investors to co-invest with us in projects that create jobs, particularly in Djibouti and the Horn of Africa, through joint ventures or successful economic alliances.
Together with our stakeholders, we structure, invest, develop and operate projects with high growth and employment potential for current and future generations in the Republic of Djibouti.
