…Addis Ababa’s rising profile for global meetings
Ethiopia has, in the past few months, hosted major international meetings, increasing the diplomatic and hospitality profile of its capital Addis Ababa, which is the seat of the African Union and other United Nations offices.
In May, Addis Ababa hosted UNESCO’s World Press Freedom Day, which brought together major stakeholders over a three-day period. Ethiopia will also host the 2020 World Economic Forum on Africa and in June, Addis Ababa was chosen to host the next FIFA Congress in 2020.
