Addis Ababa, February 6, 2013 (WIC) - Ethiopians living in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) have so far bought 2.5 million US dollars worth of bonds for the construction of the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD).

They have also pledged to buy another 95,000 US dollars worth of bonds.

“Ethiopians in UAE who rightly understood the significance of the GERD has been supporting the project in enthusiastic manner,” Ethiopia’s Consul General in the UAE, Misaganu Arega, said at the festival held to celebrate the second anniversary of the beginning of the construction of the Dam.
