Ethiopia's ambitious Growth and Transformation Plan may be a huge and daunting task, but the new generation that is carrying the torch of Hidri Meles and Hidri Suwatna(martyrs) is doing all in its power to make it a reality. The following pictures are from Mesfin Engineering in Mekelle. The plant is working at full capacity to deliver key parts for the many Sugar plants all over the country. Infact Mesfin has outsourced many of its other businesses to other small business contractors who were trained and certified by the company so that it concentrates on delivering these key parts to the Sugar industry. Going forward many of the established companies like Mesfin are expected to work with local suppliers and contractors to kick start the industrialization process.  |  BreakNews|   MFA|   Capital|   Fortune|   BBC|   Walta|   ENA|   Reporter|   Tigraionline  VOA Fana  |    Dwoyane | Zefen|   EthioAdvocate

Ideology Impedes Business
Traditions of anti-business and anti-trade attitudes run deep in Ethiopian society, but what has been the impact of the Revolutionary Democrats on these traditions?-- this article was taken from addisfortune.It is an interesting read! The paper seems to like Zemen bank but none of the other Banks! The paper also alleges the governing party favors certain business over others.
