Ambassador’s New Year Message

10 Sep 2017

Fellow Ethiopians,

On the occasion of the Ethiopian New Year my wife, Abebetch Zeleke Aweke, as well as all Embassy staff, join me in wishing you all our heart-felt best wishes as we usher in the year 2010 in the Ethiopian Calendar.

The past year has allowed us to sustain our continued growth rate, making Ethiopia one of the fastest-growing economies in the world.

We now find ourselves in the mood of high hope that the strenuous and conscientious endeavour the nation had exhibited in the past 12 months will start yielding great dividends to Ethiopia in the coming year. The ushering in of Industrial Parks in Hawassa and Mekele, as well as the imminent commencement of services on the Addis-Djibouti Railway are expected to enhance the flow of foreign direct investment into Ethiopia.

I want to avail myself of this auspicious occasion and encourage Ethiopia’s sizeable community in the United Kingdom to access Ethiopia’s vast investment opportunities. In this regard, the Embassy’s committed staff are more than happy to assist you. Our revamped website – www.ethioembassy.org.uk – which becomes operational on Ethiopian New Year, is designed to serve your needs effectively.

 

Melkam Addis Amet! 

H.E. Dr Hailemichael Aberra Afework

Ambassador
