At the port in Mogadishu, a constant stream of ships arrives carrying the cargo to rebuild Somalia.
摩加迪沙港口船只川流不息,运载着重建索马里所需的货物。

Ismail Abukar Hussein, a 32-year-old truck driver, said, "A year ago, we could make one delivery a month. Now we can make between three to five deliveries. Business is booming because of the peace.
32岁的伊斯梅尔·阿布卡·侯赛因是一名卡车司机,“一年前,我们一个月才能运一次货。现在可以运三到五次,如今和平了,商业也开始繁荣了。”

The roads in Mogadishu have been cleared of roadblocks set up by the militant group al-Shabab for nearly two years, allowing Hussein to freely deliver food and construction materials around the city.
阿尔沙巴布武装组织两年前在摩加迪沙道路上设置的路障已被清除,这样侯赛因就可自由无碍地在市内运送食物和建筑材料。

Port Manager Abdullahi Alle Noor estimates the port sees 20 percent more ships today than this time last year. He said, “We have new activity. There is a container terminal and we have started exporting livestock. It shows that Mogadishu is ready to be a fully functioning seaport.”
港口经理阿卜杜拉·阿莱·诺尔估计,如今的港口的船只比去年这个时候多了20%,他说:“如今有了新生意,这是个集装箱码头,我们已经开始出口牲畜,这表明摩加迪沙开始成为充分运作的港口。”

The port is one example of how gains in security have enabled an economic revival in this war-torn country.
这个港口说明安全可以给这个被战争摧残的国家带来经济繁荣。

It is an image of progress the Somali delegation will show off in London, hoping to harness international aid and recognition of Somalia as a viable state ready for investment.
索马里代表团将在伦敦展示这幅发展的景象,希望利用国际援助和索马里作为适宜投资国家的形象大做文章。
