Ethiopia Starts Talks With Exiled Group, Signaling Rapprochement
Ethiopia's government began talks with the exiled Oromo Democratic Front, signaling the start of a broader engagement with the opposition group.A "high-level" government delegation met ODF officials May 11 and May 12 to discuss reforms being implemented by Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, the group said in a statement Sunday, without disclosing the location of the talks. An ODF delegation will travel to Ethiopia
If this approach bears fruit it will be interesting to see who will the majority of the Oromo people vote for in the next election? Will this affect the OPDO standing in EPRDF? Unless OPDO, ODF, and OFC form a new front the vote will certainly be divided which will dilute OPDO standing. EPRDF must prepare the country so that coalition government works in the future, the country is certainly heading that way! Frist thing first though! ODF must register as legal opposition so that the constitution is not undermined!

Ethiopia bushlands, promised riches of a railway boom turn to dust
Ethiopia's new £2.5bn, 750km (466-mile) line began commercial operations at the start of the year, making it Africa’s first fully electrified cross-border railway. Built and financed by Chinese investors and contractors, and shadowing the route of an earlier French-built track, the Addis Ababa-Djibouti railway lies at the heart of Ethiopia’s development aspirations.
Now that the finger pointing game is over, PM Abiy government must be mindful how the neo-liberals are attacking his government from within.The article main target is the Chines and the developmental state model, however, it is artfully using local complaints as a weapon. PM Abiy now is the time to articulate Ethiopia's problem and educate the public. Is it really petty theft and rent seekers or the neo-liberals who want Ethiopia to abandon the big projects like Hedase Dam and railroad expansion with the help of the Chinese?

When planning a hike on an active volcano, safety before spectacle
I peered over the craggy rim of Erta Ale, Ethiopia's most active volcano, at the lava lake below. Beneath a gassy haze, boiling, ruby-red, molten rock thickened and rose up, swelling like a tidal wave topped off by a fireworks of crashing surf. Earth is made up of blood and guts, I thought, just like me.

China Provides 250 Million USD Loan for Ethiopia
Addis Ababa May 10//2018 the government of China has provided 250 million USD loan for the project designed to solve the potable water shortage of Mekele, the regional capital of Tigray Regional State.

Many of the big projects in Ethiopia are clearly affected by the recent devaluation of the birr as well the need to finish Hedase Dam at any cost! It will be a travesty if this project is also to be affected by bureaucratic delay and inefficiency!

An Ethiopia-backed port is changing power dynamics in the Horn of Africa
When Eritrea gained its independence from Ethiopia in 1993, Ethiopia became landlocked and therefore dependent on its neighbors—especially Djibouti—for access to international markets. This dependency has hampered Ethiopia’s aspiration to emerge as the uncontested regional power in the Horn of Africa.
