I really proud of you. Thank you very much for your continuous endeavor on the opportunities and challenges of low level productivity and investment in developing countries particular in Africa. How ever, how do you see the FDI in Ethiopia? Since a lot of incentives are provided by the government for foreign investors and at the same time there is problem of Financial reporting.
