But great wines are also made where you may least expect them. Here’s the lowdown on wine production in five unexpected destinations, many of which are already popular among tourists for other reasons.

Once best known internationally as the site of devastating famine and other humanitarian disasters, Ethiopia has since acquired a different image abroad thanks to its rich cuisine and culture. Now the country’s wines are also making their way around the globe.

IGAD: South Sudan’s warring factions holding direct talks
By Elias Meseret


The Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) has announced today that the peace talks on South Sudan have continued in Bahir Dar today. The Sixth Session of the Second Phase of the IGAD led multi-stakeholder peace talks on South Sudan have also officially opened today.

IGAD said the participants have accepted the First Draft of the Text Arising from the 25 August Protocol and Stakeholders’ Positions as a basis for the negotiations in Bahir Dar, the capital of the Amhara National Regional State.

Since reconvening on 13 September 2014, the IGAD mediators have engaged and consulted with the delegates to build consensus on the way forward for the South Sudan peace process.

It is to be recalled that IGAD Assembly of Heads of State and Government endorsed the Protocol on Agreed Principles on Transitional Arrangements towards Resolution of the Crisis in South Sudan in Addis Ababa on 25 August 2014.

The heads of delegations representing the Government of the Republic of South Sudan, the Sudan Peoples’ Liberation Movement in Opposition, the SPLM Leaders (also called former detainees), the Civil Society Organizations and the Faith-Based Organizations were provided on 20 September 2014 with the draft text to review and prepare for the negotiations.

Dispute between Tewodros Tadesse and Jacky Gosee at the Eve concert

Sources have said that there have been severe disputes at the Ethiopian New Year eve concert where the legendary Ethiopian Musician Tewodros Tadesse and the famous young Ethiopian musician Jacky Gosee took stage together. For most Ethiopian music lovers, the combination is a bit weird since Jacky Gosee (Gosaye Kelemu) has only a couple of single releases with no album to his name and in contrast Tewodros Tadesse has lots of albums in his decade’s long music career.

Jacky Gosee has received 1.5 million birr for the eve concert; one of the highest payment for an artist in a single event.
Celebrated musician Alemayehu Eshete and ‘Yetemesgen Lejoch’ have also taken part in the eve concert.

H&M expands into Ethiopia, hoping to create jobs for local women

As H&M expands into Ethiopia, Sweden’s state venture capital unit Swedfund has announced that it will back the clothing giant, in a move hoped to create more jobs for local women.

The partnership, which is set to kick off in autumn this year, will see Swedfund injecting 60 million kronor ($8.6 million) in investments to H&M suppliers, reported the Dagens Industri newspaper.
The goal is to create a domestic textile industry that’s both sustainable and responsible, Swedfund announced in a statement.

“Through this unique partnership with H&M, our goal is to contribute to developing the textile industry in Ethiopia, thus creating jobs with good working conditions that lift people out of poverty, especially women,” said Anna Ryott, CEO at Swedfund.
