We are delighted to have hosted our annual #legalupdate followed by a cocktail reception at Hyatt Regency on October 29, 2019. A number of #laws have been passed this year, bringing sweeping changes to the #Ethiopian legal landscape. Our lead #lawyers did an excellent job presenting the major highlights of the relevant #legalreforms to our clients, partners, and business associations. The update covered the New Employment Proclamation, Civil Society Proclamation (NGOs), Tax Related Directives, and a keynote interview with Dr. Brook Taye, Senior Legal Advisor to the Ministry of Finance. Thank you Brook Taye (Ph.D.), Tadesse Lencho, Benyam Tafesse, and Zelalem Yibrah for your incredible presentations, and huge thanks to our attendees for making the forum interactive.
