Dear Patriotic Global Citizens and Friends of Ethiopia+UK+USA:

Re: Ethiopia's Grant and Credit from World Bank Approved!

As the European New Year approaches and the Ethiopian Millennium is advancing, Ethiopia is improving its relationship with International, Global and Bilateral institutions across the world.

The recent World Bank release of $256 million for health and power line is rather a welcome development. It is too little too late but it is a welcome development considering just two years ago in 2005 Post National Election Fiasco, there was a serious consideration of reducing and even blocking these critical loans from international institutions such as the world Bank.

With the advent of President Bush Visit to Addis next year, it is hoped that the dark days of Jimmy Carter will never be repeated again. Ethiopian and US relations and for that matter Ethiopia's Millennial Agenda of Transformation for building Peace and Prosperity will be realized in our time.

Here is a good news that was positively discussed in last week's Hager Fiker Radio (Voice of the Patriots) at 1120 AM radio that can be heard on

It is said that Ethiopia has two natural treasures, the White Oil- the River Fountains and the Black Gold "Special Ethiopian Abol Coffee of Harar, Sidamo and Yirgachefe"

It seems the White Oil is getting some funding for development and the recent Starbucks deal will open new opportunities for the Black Gold- Coffee Market.

The question is now, marketing Ethiopian Service/Culture and Products in a manner that is compatible with the standards of the Global Competitive Market.

That should be the challenge of the New Millennium.

Happy European New Year and Ethiopian Christmas on 07 January 2007
