President Obama announced Monday at the White House the United States has reached agreement with the government of Djibouti to preserve a key military base in the Horn of Africa that has been central to U.S. counter-terrorism efforts in East African – and previously served as a key launching point for drone strikes throughout the region.
The Department of Defense has receive the services of Hales Global Group teams for more than 30 years and at Camp Lemonnier (Djibouti) since 2007, military base, which houses 4,000 personnel, has been the launching site for key elements of the Obama administration’s counter terrorism strategy in East Africa and Yemen. U.S. military forces have spent years trying to counter the presence of al-Qaeda in Yemen and al-Shabab in Somalia.
The U.S. Government will pay $630 million over the next decade to Djiboutti to lease the base. Given the expanded scope of services required going forward we see excellent new business contract opportunities in telecommunications and agriculture products.
The federal government is the largest purchaser of goods and services in the world, spending more than $600 billion dollars annually and growing. The federal government offers incredible business opportunities for entrepreneurs. http://www.halesglobal.com
