Nobel Laureate's Book, Synergy Launched

Book written by Ethiopia's Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed.

Medemer (an Amharic word for Synergy), a book by Ethiopia's Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed has been launched.
Thousands of residents, government officials and diplomats attended the launching of the book held at the millennium hall in the capital Addis Ababa on Saturday.
Synergy is a worldview that essentially expounds of the need for 'adding up' as opposed to 'zero sum game' as a means to economic and social development and a foreign relation based on cooperation and healthy competition for a win-win.
Winner of the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize, Ethiopian Prime Minister authored the book after taking on the mantle of government as Prime Minister on April 2, 2018 – a watershed moment in Ethiopian history that ushered in a plethora of reform measures.
The coming to power of Abiy followed a three-year incessant anti-government protests across Ethiopia, especially in the two most populous regional states of Oromia and Amhara, resulting in ending a 27-year hegemony of the Tigray People's Liberation Front (TPLF) within the ruling Ethiopian Peoples' Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF).
The book is tipped to become a policy document of the government once popularized and accepted by the general public through discussions and debates.
The book came in three languages: Amharic, Afan Oromo and English and has a price tag of 300 Birr (A little over $10).
The 278-page book has about 16 chapters with over 60 bibliographies including references and a glossary.
