MTI Consulting has launched a Strategy Consulting Internship Program across 3 of their Key Frontier Markets (KFMs); Bhutan, Pakistan and Rwanda.

“Given our Projects, Associates and Links in these 3 markets, we are firmly committed to developing local resources in Bhutan, Pakistan and Rwanda. We are encouraged by the kind of Graduate Entry-level Talent and interest in Strategy Consulting. Our approach is a very practical one that focuses on giving our Interns a 360 degree perspective of Strategy Consulting – via hands-on involvement in our projects. Participants are challenged with the dual learning tasks of ‘playing back’ what they learnt and ‘putting back’ (into practice) how they can apply their learnings.” said Malithi Herath from MTI’s South Asian Operations who is responsible for conceptualizing, executing and mentoring these Strategy Consulting Interns.

Speaking at the launch of this initiative MTI’s CEO Hilmy Cader said “Frontier Markets represents a big opportunity and therefore a big focus for us at MTI. Investing in talent in these markets is part of our long term strategy to build a strong position in these fast-growing markets.”

MTI Consulting is an internationally-networked boutique management consultancy – having carried out 670 projects across 49 countries – in the last 24 years. - Daily News

Ethiopia has earned 610 million U.S. dollars from Chinese built industrial parks, the Ethiopia Industrial Park Development Corporation (EIPDC) disclosed on Sunday.

Behailu Kebede, Marketing and Communications Department Chief at EIPDC, said the 610 million U.S. dollars export revenue was earned from 13 Chinese built industrial parks.

Kebede further said the 13 industrial parks have created job opportunities for more than 89,000 Ethiopians, reported state media outlet Ethiopia Broadcasting Corporation (EBC).

"The textiles and other export related products produced by industrial parks have garnered good reviews by European and North American customers," Kebede said.

Ethiopia currently has 13 operational industrial parks, with several more under-construction expected to be commissioned during the current Ethiopian Fiscal Year 2020/2021.

In recent years, Ethiopia has embarked on industrial parks' construction and commissioning activities, as part of a broad economic strategy to make the country a light manufacturing hub in Africa by 2025.

The Ethiopian government has attached great importance to cooperation with Chinese firms in various fields.

These include the construction of industrial parks along with giant Chinese firms investing in various industrial hubs, the majority of which were built with Chinese expertise and finance. Xinhua
