Djibouti                                                       
Djibouti is the capital of and most populous settlement in the Republic of Djibouti, which is named after it. It is located in the coastal Djibouti Region on the Gulf of Tadjoura. Home to around 600,000 inhabitants, the city contains over 60% of the nation's population. The settlement was founded in 1888 by the French, on land leased from the ruling Somali and Afar Sultans. During the ensuing period, it served as the capital of French Somaliland and its successor the French Territory of the Afars and Issas. The city acts as a gateway between the Horn of Africa and the Arabian Peninsula, and is a regional and national administrative, cultural, educational and financial hub. Djibouti-Ambouli International Airport is the main airport in Djibouti city, connecting the capital to all major international destinations. It is known as Pearl of the Gulf of Tadjoura due to its location.

Economy
As the capital of and largest settlement in Djibouti, most local businesses have their headquarters in Djibouti city. Djibouti Telecom, the largest telecommunications company in the country, is based here. During its existence, Djibouti Airlines also had its head office in the city.[9] Djibouti city is the financial hub to many entrepreneurial industries ranging from construction, retail, import and export, Internet cafes, and companies that process remittances from relatives abroad who send money.
Port operations from the vicinity of Djibouti City are the chief economic activity of Djibouti. The city's port is the terminus for Ethiopian oil transport and export. Increase in railway infrastructure pending a contract agreement in 2012 will further enable Ethiopian and Eritrean oil to reach the capital.
