A new era for Ethiopia: Economic and political reforms under Abiy Ahmed

Abiy Ahmed

Prime minister of Ethiopia Abiy Ahmed has set his sights on transforming his country into a beacon of progress and prosperity.

With a vision to eradicate poverty and elevate Ethiopia to new heights, Abiy has embarked on a series of ambitious economic and political initiatives that are reshaping the landscape of the nation.

One of the key projects championed by the prime minister is the Addis Ababa corridor project, which aims to revitalise the old parts of the capital city and position it as a political hub for Africa.

Drawing inspiration from cities like Brussels and New York, Abiy envisions Addis Ababa as a bustling metropolis that attracts tourists and investors from around the world.

Leading the charge in implementing the prime minister’s vision is Addis Ababa mayor, Adanech Abebe. Known for her relentless work ethic and dedication to the project, Adanech has been praised for her hands-on approach to project management.

Working around the clock with her cabinet, Adanech has earned the nickname ‘Iron Lady’ for her unwavering commitment to turning the prime minister’s vision into reality.

One of the crown jewels of the Addis Ababa corridor project is the Addis Africa Convention Centre, a state-of-the-art facility that aims to connect Africa with the rest of the world. With plans to host exhibitions on par with global events like Gulf Foods in Dubai and the Canton Fair in China, the convention centre is expected to generate an annual income of up to US$10 billion.

Featuring a five-star hotel, free zone company offices, meeting halls, brand outlet shops and parks, the centre is poised to become a major source of foreign exchange income for Ethiopia.

Ethiopian Airlines, the giant of Africa, will also play a significant role in connecting the world with Africa, relieving many Africans from lengthy journeys to China and expensive accommodations in the Gulf.

As Abiy and Adanech continue to oversee the progress of the Addis Ababa corridor project, residents of Addis Ababa have taken notice of their dedication and commitment.

With their hands-on approach and tireless work ethic, the prime minister and the mayor are setting a new standard for project management in Africa, inspiring hope and optimism for a brighter future for Ethiopia.
