Djibouti (Sudanow) - The Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) has congratulated Dr. Abiy Ahmed, for his election as the new Prime Minister of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia.

“Ethiopia, which has embarked on a path of a truly astonishing rapid economic growth, has also been faced with formidable challenges that usually accompany such growth processes.” The press release said adding “It is with this backdrop that the election of H.E. Dr. Abyi was timely and eagerly awaited for.”
