Skip to comments.U.S. to Help Boost Business Competitiveness -- In Ethiopia
Posted on 12/12/2012 2:08:33 PM PST by Steve Peacock
A $20 million contract to spark "private sector competitiveness" in Ethiopia has been awarded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). As U.S. Trade & Aid Monitor reported earlier this year, the agency's Finance and Business Services (FaBS) Project seeks to increase Ethiopian industry's access to financing in order to drive "sustainable economic growth" while reducing poverty (Monitor, April 26, 2012).
CARANA Corp., an Arlington, Virginia-based consulting company, will carry out the project for USAID over the next five years. CARANA in October separately secured a $12 million USAID contract to execute the Nigeria Expanded Trade and Transport (NEXTT) program, whose goal "is to support the Nigerian government's efforts to expand trade domestically... and improve its efficiency so that trade, particularly in agricultural products, can provide inclusive economic growth and development of Nigeria."

this kind of s—t never ceases to amaze me.
One of the goals of this administration is to sap the money out of this country and send it to “poor oppressed downtrodden” countries.
At least it has a chance of succeeding.. it’s not Detroit.
They got zilch!
I remember also that stone masons in Palestine got some $450 million to “enhance” their business.
Agenda 21- shut in US production from natural resources. Export the wealth of the country abroad.
