Abebe Abebayehu is appointed by Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed (PhD) to serve the Ethiopian Investment Commission, replacing Fitsum Arega, the former head, according to Addis Fortune Newspaper.

Prior to his appointment, Abebe had served as a deputy before he was moved to the Prime Minister Office, following his former boss, Fistume Arega.

Abebe, a lawyer by training has more than a decade of experience working on private sector development, economic policy, and regulatory reform, negotiations of international trade and investment agreements, academic research, and teaching.

In college, he finished top of his class and received the Chancellor’s Gold Medal Award from the Addis Abeba University. Abebe has LL.M in International Trade and Investment Law from the University of Western Cape, South Africa and LL.M in Energy Law and Policy from the University of Dundee, United Kingdom, both of which he finished with distinction.

Fitsum Arega the former head of the Commission is now assigned to serve as Ethiopia’s ambassador to the United States.

Abebe is the second appointee to this position since Abiy Ahmed took office in April.

During that time the commission was led by Fitsume Arega, months later Belachew Mekuria (PhD), his deputy was taking the position as Fitsum was assigned to be chief of staff of the PM office.

Belache Mekuria (PhD) was appointed to the position by Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed in April this year during a reshuffle that saw Fitsum Arega, now prime minister Abiy’s chief of staff, leave his position as commissioner of EIC for the PM’s office.
