This is the September 12, 2018 hearing on "Reviewing Current Developments in Ethiopia," held before the U.S. House Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, Global Human Rights, and International Organizations of the Committee on Foreign Affairs. From the opening statement of Mike Coffman: "What we have seen in Ethiopia over the past few months has been entirely remarkable. New reforms and changes under the leadership of Prime Minister Abiy have started Ethiopia on what I believe to be a stronger path of inclusion, democracy, and new freedoms. It is of the utmost importance that the United States can show to Ethiopia and the Ethiopian people that we stand side by side with them as these reforms occur and that we are able to provide assistance whenever and wherever possible. House Resolution 128, which was passed by the House of Representatives on April 10, has played an important role in illustrating the commitment that the United States has concerning the people of Ethiopia. This legislation called on the Government of Ethiopia to make clear, decisive steps toward becoming more inclusive, more democratic, and more respectful of the basic human rights of its own citizens." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Tibor P. Nagy, Jr., Girum Alemayehu, Jamal Said, Emily Estelle, and Yoseph M. Badwaza.
