Current and past administrations have tried to tap into the potential of Ethiopians living abroad. As much as there always has been the understanding that the diaspora can play a greater role in the Ethiopian economy, politics has always taken over the way in which government looks at this vast community.

The Ethiopian diaspora—vocal in their criticism of local politics—has long been regarded as a threat to government. Hence, they have been alienated from social, political, and economic activities of their home country. For the most part, the nation has not been able to tap into the opportunities of economic potential which the community possesses.

The recent mobilization of the diaspora in the diplomatic arena gives an insight into their economic potential. If mobilized upon the appropriate strategy, they can play a greater role beyond remittance and direct financial support to be investors and champions of investment, writes EBR’s Bamlak Fekadu.

Ethiopian football has not progressed to the best interest of football fans. Participation at international tournaments has been a luxury the national football has barely afforded through the years. As much as on-the-pitch criticism has been evident, financial constraints have also challenged the development of football and Ethiopian sports in general. Robust marketing and stronger support to regional federations could be the way forward, writes Abiy Wendifraw.
