India Somalia Trade goes back to two centuries. Somalia merchants used to come with small boats to Mumbai, Gujrat buy commodities and travel back with their small boats to Mogadishu, Kismayu, Barbara and Bossaso Ports.


During 2014-15, India-Somalia trade was US$ 391.05 million showing more than 51% increase over the figure of US$ 257.27 million during 2013-14.


Somalia qualifies for India’s offer of unilateral duty free tariff preferential market access for export of goods and services to India. The scheme, introduced in 2008, offers duty free access to exports from LDCs on 84% of India’s tariff lines and preferential access for another 9%.
