Harnessing technology can create new opportunities for the next generation across Africa, Christine Lagarde said during the first visit by an IMF Managing Director to the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa. Along with Ethiopia, Lagarde's itinerary on this month's Africa trip includes Benin and Djibouti. "The performance of the Ethiopian economy has been strong," she told Addis Fortune in an exclusive interview.

Christine Lagarde at the Eastern Industrial Park in Addis: "I saw the dynamism and enthusiasm of the people working there and the commitment of private investors to #Ethiopia."
