As teachers and educators they have given a helping hand to nation building in their host country, as entrepreneurs, they have created economic opportunities and imparted skills to local people, as tech- professionals and workers they have added value to Ethiopian Industry. With hard work and dedication, the Indian community commends respect of the Ethiopian society.

The President said the Government of India seeks sustained and proactive engagement with our overseas community. The purpose of this engagement is to provide an opportunity to familiarise the community with transformational changes taking place in India. The dialogue with the diaspora is also aimed at shaping possibilities and platforms through which it can participate in India’s growth and development.
The President said the Government of India cares for the overseas Indian community. He referred to efforts made to evacuate Indian citizens from Yemen (as part of Operation Rahat in 2015) and Libya, and helped individuals and families during the floods in parts of the United States.
