"This seminar can contribute ideas or innovations in this field so that we can incorporate this officially to the second phase of the GTP that we are now preparing", Admasu Shibru, president of Wolkite University, told IANS.

"It is very important for us to realise the educational vision and transform the socio-economic situation of this country even as we are trying to benchmark all possible innovations in terms of developing each sector." The seminar under the theme of "Development, Diaspora and International Relations of African Countries" is being attended by academicians from India as well as the business community, civil society organisations and NGOs from Ethiopia.
