Also, the Ethiopian Airlines Group would make a 15-20 percent discount and special preparations at the Skylight Hotel for the guests.

The PM invited the second-generation members of the diaspora to come home in three rounds from the end of December 2023 to the beginning of September 2024.

Those who come in the 1st round under Connect to Your Multi-cultural Roots would celebrate Ethiopian Christmas, Epiphany, and victory celebrations afterward.

The 2nd round homecoming dubbed Connect to Your History will be during the African Union annual summit to the coming rainy season.
The 3rd round is from summer to the end of September 2024 and under the motto Leave Your Legacy through tree planting, teaching, and participating in other works.
