Association of Ethiopians Educated in Germany turns 20!

Over 650 Ethiopian academics and professionals are members of the Association of Ethiopians Educated in Germany (AEEG), the largest German alumni association in Sub Saharan Africa. They all have one thing in common: they have either studied, worked or lived in Germany for at least six months and are now active in promoting Ethio-German bilateral relations through their personal engagement.

In order to honour this perennial commitment, the German Ambassador personally opened the annual meeting of the AEEG on its 20th anniversary on Saturday 19 March 2016 in the historical Africa Hall at the UN Economic Commission for Africa. In his speech he congratulated all members for their personal contributions to the success story of the AEEG and encouraged all members to work closely with German partners from their professional background to make full use of the potentials of the Association.
