Thank you for your messages and your interesting information. I was in Addis in June and met with the Sugar Development Agency, which was very interesting as well. Of course we would appreciate any information you were able to pass on regarding biofuel development in Ethiopia. Please send me a message with your email address and we can continue the discussion.
