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.
