Reuters details how Ethiopia making headway in changing world’s view on country

Reuters detailed how three decades after images of famine and communist purges filled TV screens and shaped the world’s view of Ethiopia, the country is making headway in the battle to change attitudes. Over the past decade, visitor numbers have risen 12 percent per year to reach 600,000 in 2014. Next year’s target is one million. Instead of beach holidays and safaris, land-locked Ethiopia is promoting its imperial past as well as its mountainous and majestic topography to drive tourism.
