Still in a monopoly situation, the historical operator - Djibouti Télécom - is preparing to open up its capital. This trial run could soon impact the Djibouti public sector’s other champions.

The plans to privatise Djibouti Telecom are in the final stages. ”The process is underway, for a decision that should be implemented before the end of the year,” said Ilyas Moussa Dawaleh, the minister of economy and finance.
