BelgoEthiopian Business Club is now a member of the European Union Business Forum in Ethiopia (EUBFE) - European Chamber in Ethiopia (Link to website).

"The EUBFE was established in 2012 in response to the need for a sustained dialogue with the Ethiopian authorities; and a platform for networking and information-sharing between EU businesses.
In February 2017, the EUBFE formally registered as a 'Foreign Investors Association' and can now operate as an independent legal entity to fulfil its mission."
