India Business Forum

India Business Forum (IBF) launched in October 30, 2005, under the patronage of the Embassy, was aimed at encouraging new Indian investments, forming a platform for dialogue with various Ethiopian authorities and for encouraging networking by Indian investors to benefit from each other’s experience. IBF holds periodic meetings inviting dignitaries e.g. Presidents of the Regional States, General Managers of banks, Director General of Ethiopian Customs Revenues Authority (ERCA), Ethiopian Employers Federation, Ministers of Trade, Industry and even the former PM H.E. Mr. Meles Zenawi. IBF has also signed an MoU of cooperation with ERCA. These meetings have provided a new dimension to the bilateral co-operation and IBF has been a success in showcasing India’s participation in Ethiopia’s development process and furthering trade and economic ties between the two countries. The Prime Minister of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia, H.E. Mr. Hailemariam Desalegn graced the 9th anniversary celebration of IBF as Chief Guest on 29 October 2014.
