    It is really a good and thoughtfull idea. The farmer shouldn’t worry to whom they are going to sell their product. She made life easy to the farmer. And more export means GDP will increase. Keep up good work.

    This was long overdue. Now what we need is modern irrigation systems to guarantee the agricultural production and modern storage & processing systems. By modern irrigation system I mean maybe some of our overflowing rivers can be redirected towards the farmlands year round production instead of fate….rain. And then maybe it needs to be explained overproduction & surplus is ok to the farmers & there will be plenty of jobs for the multitude. People’s belief in the system will prosper. Kudos to Mrs. Eleni & her entire team for taking the first courageous steps into the battleground. We need more other visionaries like her in other industries to move the country forward.

    Eleni is the most charsmatic scholar who is striving to change the Ethiopian negative picture into positive economic growth. She is an example and i hope other Ethiopian scholars learn from her to contribute to their nation in their area of expertise.
    Eneni, thank you and keep up the good work.

    It might be Good for the future, but we shouldn’t have to forget the specialty market too. We all want to see the country in a better economic position. In my prospect besides marketing, traceability is very important.
    The difference between conventional and specialty market, conventional market is looking only for price, on the other hand specialty market, they want to know where the coffees comes from, cup quality and fair price for the farmers.

    Ethiopian farmers will benefit for getting fair price for their products, thanks to Eleni and the government for making this happen. I hope others is USA who just blame the government for everything will get the courage to share their skills like Eleni did.
