Tourism Ethiopia in collaboration with Facebook have announced the launch of Boost with Facebook for Tourism Ethiopia – a digital marketing programme for Ethiopian SMB’s in the tourism and hospitality sector affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The programme is being implemented by Summer Media, a local digital marketing company in Ethiopia.
