For the first time discussions will be held between diplomats and the private sector during the training and evaluation that is going to be conducted for Ethiopian diplomats next week.
Sources told Capital that the Business and Economy Diplomatic Directorate of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) has written letters to business associations to attend the discussion that will be held on Friday August 24 at an undisclosed location. The overall training will begin tomorrow at Ghion Hotel and will last for two weeks.
The discussion that will be held between Ethiopian representatives from abroad and the business associations next Friday is expected to seek a win/win solution to revise the original GTP.
“Currently, the private sector has several problems related with cross boarder business so the current discussion is a good opportunity to emphasize the issues for our representatives abroad,” a businessman said.
A week ago Ambassador Dina Mufti, spokesperson of MoFA told Capital that the difference [in this training] is that it is multi-dimensional. He explained that the courses are given both by foreign and national experts in the field.
The event includes discussions about the performance of the Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP), religious extremism, bond sales for the Grand Renaissance Dam, economic diplomacy and other issues.
Sources expect that the discussion will focus on the role of the private sector in the GTP while accessing the first two years of the five year plan. Private business is considered by many to be vital for the program to reach its target goals.
Ethiopia has over 65 envoys across the globe. Since Ethiopia is the seat of the African Union, Ethiopian diplomats are expected to do more internationally in a bid to build the image of the country and the continent. Just a year ago, MoFA summoned Ethiopia’s diplomats abroad for a month long training that focused on broadening their knowledge base in international affairs, trade, investment and tourism.
Last year’s customized training was initiated because the government recognizes the importance of sharpening leadership skills of senior government officials in the area of economic diplomacy so that they can better apply themselves in the emerging and competitive global economic order, according to the ministry.
