The University’s Information and Strategic Communication Vice President Molla Ababu advised the graduates to play an active role as they would be a vehicle through which the country would be able to link up with the global marine industry.

In the wake of awarding certificate to graduates, Minister of Ministry of Education, Demeke Mekonnen said that imparting quality education is a top agenda of government’s five years’ Growth and Transformation Plan in a move aimed at producing knowledgeable, skilled and technologically superior human power that could be competitive at a national and international job market.

Demeke pointed out that the positive feedback from employers and high performance of ex-graduates in the international marine industry could be a sample to showcase the effectiveness of the program being undertaken in Ethiopia.

They graduated on the right time for the Somali navy which have to start everything from scratch.

The new Somali constitution states that any foreigner who has been in the country for 5 years has a right to get Somali citizenship.
Personally, I would not mind a brain drain of another country if it is in our favor.

Laughable! Landlocked desert nomads training the youth for the swiming season. This of course is the usual tplf cunning fox tricks of the trade where it is dressed in sheep skin and offering an empty mythological magic cake or the proverbial mana from the high sky just to tranquilize and cheat the Ehiopian people endlessely. Very funny!

It is obvious that those idiots mentally chalanged would come and dump their trashy comments as usual against any positivie activities that going in Ethiopia…

Educating, and producing a young ethiopian professionnals is, a jok to them?! I’m just wondering, what is that they may consider not a joke to them?!

They seem to fail realizing that they are the most jokers whom continually embarrassing themselves by positing their trashy comments…

For those of you shaebia cadres, you sound like are predicting what exactly will happened within the next few years….I mean, the so called independent is not benefiting to the the majority of the Eretirean people, and the really jagement to deside their future fate will be held soon….though i guaranty you that this time will be the lasting solution to all the peace loveing people of the region mostly for the Ethiopian people!!

God bless the world!!

I don’t think many of Ethiopia’s enemies know that Ethiopia still has several ships. Ethiopia uses her own ships to transport all goods to and from all over the world. Some time ego, Somale pairates tried to siez one of Ethiopia’s ships, and the brave Ethiopians didn’t allow that to happen, remember?

shut up dumbs! some of u r crying over spilt milk and the rest of u sound like u r voicing the agony of ur painful ignorance. Today’s lesson to u all above: we have more than ten ships where these engineers can work on and we need more of the same for better international commerce.Hey out of your narrow thinking box exists a worl in which those countries like us ,without seaport, can do what u read in the above article….educate urself and refrain from issuing undue criticism…..class dismissed!!
