        • Serve as diplomats for Ethiopia
        • Use foreign exchange through official banking systems
        • Buy EEPCO Millennium Bond,
        • Invest in Agriculture and Manufacturing,
        • Invest in ICT
        • and Invest in Construction and Consultancy

Yet some environmentalists are apparently deeply disturbed by the prospect of industrialisation in Africa, and would rather it remains, quite literally, a "dark continent".
