A high level Ethiopian delegation drawn from the Regional states, the Federal government and from various departments in the Ministry of Education wrapped up a two-week skill up-grading courses sponsored by the World Bank in Virginia to-day .

The strong-twenty-man delegation was briefed by Ambassador Girma Birru, Special Envoy, Ambassador Extra-ordinary and Plenipotentiary of Ethiopia to the US and Resident Envoy to Canada and Mexico, of the long standing and cordial Diplomatic relations between Ethiopia and the US and North America.

The Special Envoy also apprised the guests of the all-encompassing people to people partnership that exists between Ethiopia and the North American countries he represents. Ambassador Girma during the briefing informed the delegates of the marked disparity between the perception and the reality on the ground pertaining to the actual number of the Ethiopian Diaspora presently domiciling in the US.

The members of the delegation raised pertinent questions regarding US investors' engagement in Ethiopia and the Ethiopian Diasporas' involvement in our country's development drive to which the Ambassador responded as positively encouraging. The two- week skill enhancement scheme is said to have highlighted on the possibility of boosting the delivery of quality education in the Ethiopian school system.
