On 27-28 March, the PIA members engaged with the public and private sector of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia.

The purpose of the visit was to take a closer look at the opportunities in a country which the PIA members generally find attractive and to support the moves of the government to a more private sector supportive environment.

On Day 1, the members met with Ethiopian ministers of Mines, Agriculture, Industry as well as representatives from the Ethiopian Investment Agency (EIA), Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ethiopian Electric Service and National Bank of Ethiopia. The morning session was presided over by the Ethiopian Deputy PM, co-coordinator of Economy Sector cluster & Minister of Information Technology Ministry.
