Economist Ethiopia Business Roundtable

First Business Roundtable with the Government of Ethiopia

March 23rd and 24th 2009
Addis Ababa


In recent years Ethiopia has emerged as Sub-Saharan Africa's surprise success story. It has become one of the fastest-growing non-oil producing economies and is seen as one of the most promising investment destinations in East Africa. But will the pressures of the global economic crisis as well as internal constraints stop this success story in its tracks? 
How can the government create a more competitive landscape for business to encourage sustained economic growth? Is the country more attractive to international companies now – or less? How will this affect your business?
Your chance to ask questions
Economist Conferences' First Business Roundtable with the Government of Ethiopia is your opportunity to join a stimulating interactive debate on the country's business outlook and investment climate. You can find out what the future holds and explore new opportunities.
Officials from the highest levels of government including Prime Minister Meles Zenawi will be speaking and taking your questions. Senior ministers will lead discussions on the key issues that impact on Ethiopia's economy. Also contributing to the debate will be experts from the Economist Intelligence Unit and experienced international business leaders.
Why you should attend
l        Update your knowledge on Ethiopia's economy with briefings from Prime Minister Meles Zenawi, senior ministers and business leaders.
l        Contribute your own ideas and influence the debate.
l        Network with senior colleagues from international businesses in a rewarding and high-powered setting.
