2018 has started off well for the Ethiopia Potato Coalition. The Coalition secretariat is set to move to its new office at the Ethiopian Institute for Agricultural Research (EIAR). In addition, Ethiopia’s leading potato expert, Ato Gebremedhin Woldegiorgis has been appointed as the Coalition's coordinator. Vita congratulates Ato Gebremedhin on his appointment and thanks EIAR for accepting to host the Coalition.
The Ethiopia Potato Coalition is one of seven country-based potato coalitions that are under the Irish Potato Coalition, a strategic initiative of Vita. The Coalition is seen as a means to realising the full potential regarding the role and place of potatoes in the highlands of Africa.
