Either by choice or circumstance, people find themselves relocating from one country to another. So often, we hear jaw-dropping statistics of xyz millions of Africans living and working in North America, with no faces to these stories. But beyond crossing the Atlantic Ocean for greener pasture, how is the situation with Africans crossing borders within the same region or continent, to set up or take-up new business opportunities?
In this new feature, Ethiopia is the center of focus :-) ! With news of how the once poverty ridden country is growing fast to becomeAfrica's lion economy, many people are adjusting their business lens to focus on the country. As BBC Africa once reported,modernity might have brought with it some interesting new job opportunities to Africa's fastest growing non-oil economy.
BUT, how attractive is this country to young professionals from other African countries? I'm excited to chat with Gamu and Chernor, who relocated from two distinct countries to work in Addis Ababa.
The goalof this interview is to share first-hand experience of what it means to work out of another African country. Hopefully, this will inspire more young professionals to seek opportunities within borders :-) and explore the rich work experiences that might exist within the continent. Yup, lets make the trend of relocating to another African country for work more attractive!
