Africa News

The Prime Minister of Ethiopia, Abiy Ahmed in a discussion with Executive Chairman of World Economic Forum (WEF), Professor Klaus Schwab made a disclosure that the World Economic Forum (WEF) and Ethiopia have come to an agreement for the African country to host the next event.


Last year, Ethiopia officially requested to host World Economic Forum (WEF) on Africa for the second time.

The response came after the Premier Abiy held a discussion with Professor Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum, in Davos, Switzerland where they deliberated issues of common concern.

The two sides also discussed the importance of a collaborative approach among business, government and the private sector, civil societies in addressing key global challenges.

It is recalled that Ethiopia, one of the fastest economies in the world, hosted World Economic Forum in 2012.
