Economy: Ethiopia's economy "performing remarkably"

African Development Bank (ADB) President Donald Kaberuka, has said that Ethiopia is performing remarkably in the economic sector.

At a press briefing, Kaberuka said Ethiopia ranks among the leading countries in the portfolio of the bank, as it is registering a remarkable economic growth in recent years. The country registered an 8.9 percent growth in gross domestic product (GDP) during the previous budget year that ended on July 7,2005, according to official data.

I am sure the tens of thousands who are dying of starvation will be so proud to hear that news, it will make their suffering so much easier.

Hope you enjoyed your three day cocktail-tour Don.
