Our “Earth from the Air” cover story featuring Yann Arthus-Bertrand, is a tremendous, well established and highly regarded global project and we can’t wait to see the picture exhibition at Alliance Francaise! Coincidentally his great grandfather edited the book “Travel to Abyssinia” back in 1845!
Ever eager to promote and highlight Ethiopia, we incorrectly sourced information that Ethiopia was the Third Richest Country in Africa in the last issue. The standard way of defining is usually measured by the total gross domestic product (GDP); sourced from www.worldsrichestcountries.com Ethiopia is 71 out of 100 ($139.4 billion and up 91.4% - 2014 IMF statistics) and Ethiopia is considered to have one of the fastest growing economies of the world! Nigeria is rated as the richest African country. In this issue we also profile entrepreneurs both home and abroad and highlight how their ties to Ethiopia and upbringings define their lives today.
See you in May!
