Primer to Meet Diaspora Community in US

Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed (PhD) will be meeting 20,000 members of the diaspora community in the United States next month.

He will meet the diaspora community in Washington DC and Los Angels. To facilitate the trip, a committee of six members was formed two months ago. In his travel, Abiy will also work on the reunion of the two Orthodox church administrations in Ethiopia and the United States.

A month ago Prime Minister Abiy’s request to meet with the Ethiopian Diaspora community in Dallas at its big July football event was declined by the organising committee. On Friday Abiy disclosed his plan of approaching the diaspora community to contribute a dollar a day to a trust fund that will finance social services in Ethiopia.
