Tigray regional government taking positive measures towards diaspora investment
This one of a kind diaspora investment has faced many problems! The absences of basic infrastructure coupled with the erratic electric supply have been the main obstacles but, the bureaucratic hurdles and inefficient labor forces coupled with a lack of capable factory managers have also contributed significantly. Nowhere but only in Tigrai is a factory closed for 'environmental pollution' these days! The gypsum byproduct that was used as an excuse to shut this factory for this long is the least harmful compared to all other pollutants in the region! Yet, the factory imported a solution and it was taxed for importing the solution - only in Tigrai! We hope the current government is learning fast how to become a business-friendly government regardless who the investors are - Foreign or Local!

Plug $10 Billion Hole and Prosper, UN Economists Tell Ethiopia Ethiopia must attract new investment and reduce its debt if it's to achieve the government's economic growth and job creation targets, according to the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa.The Horn of Africa nation has a $10 billion gap -- $6 billion in new investment and $4 billion of debt reduction per year -- that must be bridged to achieve its reform aspirations, UNECA Executive Secretary Vera Songwe said in an emailed statement. Let us see if the Harvard economist and KPMG deliver the goods to Ethiopia and the new neoliberalist friends they have installed. The much-heralded development of the past which the country was enjoying is arrested completely now. Here come the very same forces that held Africa in the dark despite its rich minerals and god-given wealth as its savior! We shall see! But, why is the Abiy government auctioning the country without a clear mandate to govern? Isn't election around the corner? Why not leave such a huge decision to the next popularly mandated government? See Also:-
An open notelet to the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia House of Peoples Representative (HPR) and House of Federation (HOF) Birhanu B. Sep 8, 2019 - Dear Member of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia House of Peoples Representative (HPR) and House of Federation (HOF). As Ethiopian citizens, each one of us started to worry about our destiny. The country is going from bad to worst in every dimension. The worst change so far is the failure to honor our pledge to protect and defend the constitution and constitutional order. The power, duties and accountability and incapacitated nature of the Ethiopian government to preserve peace, enhance development, democracy, and good governance...

Citizenship Teodros Kiros (Ph.D.)
Sep 6, 2019 - The prevailing grave situation in Ethiopia calls for a serious examination of the political idea of Citizenship. The time is now ripe to think deeply and responsibly about the meaning and practice of citizenship. I should now examine three interrelated ideas, which I will first examine separately.

Ethiopian opposition parties threaten election boycott One of the amendments raised the number of signatures to register a national party to 10,000, up from 1,500. Regional parties will need 4,000 signatures, up from 750.
If the opposition can not find 10000 members nationwide and 4000 members within their region, then why are they even worried about the election? Can they win with 750 registered supporters in any Kilil/region? If they have to oppose the law they should oppose it for something else not for such embarrassing inclusion! Ethiopian politics is full of intrigues and I am sure this is the work of the forces who are trying to prolong Abiy government by canceling the coming election. If what I am hearing is even half true, postponing the election will be catastrophic for the country and those in power. Hear ye!
