CAPITAL is the longest established English newspaper in Ethiopia. We take to heart our motto, The paper that promotes free enterprise even more as conditions and best practice policies of doing business continue to improve in Ethiopia . Our timely reportage and analysis of the rapid paced national development has become required reading for the business community, NGOs, international organizations, academics and others.


CAPITAL is not only about development and business news. In fact in this globalized village all current events are ultimately part of business news. CAPITAL's editors, reporters, researchers, photographers, layout designers, sales persons, distributors and contributors work diligently to produce the excellent features, opinions and special segments which are amply stocked reader magnets. This is not to mention our pugnacious sports commentary, witty cartoons and articulate editorials.


We often like to say that CAPITAL is the most widely read English newspaper in Ethiopia twice over. This is because www.capitalethiopia.com receives on average, 700,000 hits a month with readers accessing it continuously, making it one of the most popular sites originating from Ethiopia. So we warmly extend our most profound gratitude to you the dedicated real time audience and those in cyberspace respectively. We couldn't have done it without you! Together, we look ahead confidently to an even more promising year in the lead up to the new millennium.


Developing and sustaining innovative sections is a CAPITAL forte as is our pioneering role as the first private English large circulation newspaper to progressively introduce colour pages.
