(Amanuel Gebretinsae Aug 07, 2015)
Thanks Amanuel, we really appreciate for articulating your stand on the political themes of Dawit's interview. We can only wish there was someone like you who could articulate and address the investment issues Dawit mentioned. To be honest with you, Dawit's interview precipitated because of Investment issues - perceived or otherwise! Aside from Effort's investment companies there are not that many other companies that invested in Tigrai and people want to know why? People want to know if Effort can be involved in NGO work why can't Dawit be involved? People want to know though there has been progress over the years can this progress continue and be scaled? Do we have people in place to lead the progress..many think this is a problem right now given the mentality of office holders to investors. Thank You. Aigaforum Aug 2015
