Issues with currency mishandling and tax evasion in the Ethiopian tourism industry

(Bill Admiral , 07/10/09):- For one, I believe the tourism industry is as important to the country’s national purse and it should have a “stronger say in fiscal policy.” According to the WB report, there are currently 75 tour operators.Sadly, the number of Forex scams by major tour operators is rising.We have a whole service sector in Ethiopia being robbed of a turnover value of about $600 million a year

(Adal Isaw,06/26/09):-In few months to a year and if it continues as is, the now lukewarm concern of America for the emboldened terrorist endeavor of Al-Shebaab in Somalia will reshape President Obama’s foreign policy of the Horn for the worst. Conversely, if Mr. Obama’s concern becomes passionate with substance, it will ameliorate the dreadful conditions in a region where relative stability is desperately needed.
