India Business Forum

Last Updated on July 29, 2021

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 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 former Prime Minister Meles Zenawi. IBF has also signed 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 participation in Ethiopia development process and furthering trade and economic ties between the two countries. Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn graced the 9th anniversary celebration of IBF as Chief Guest on 29 October 2014.
