Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, 2011/06/21 - Ecom Advertising, through its portal 2merkato.com, has started providing news, which is believed to provide businesses with brief, accurate and up-to-date information on Ethiopian business happenings, relevant to the Ethiopian business community.
Ecom Advertising has started publishing Ethiopian business news on the internet through 2merkato.com, an Ethiopian B2B and business information portal.
2merkato.com has been serving the business community as a business portal for the last two and half years. The website has built a popular following among Ethiopian businesses and it is viewed in more than 130 countries every month, according to data obtained from Google Analytics.
Ecom has now ventured into providing business news relevant to the Ethiopian business community through 2merkato.com. Aggregated from different news sources and analyzed by competent professionals, the news is believed to provide businesses with brief, accurate and up-to-date information on Ethiopian business happenings.

The section in the website that contains daily updated English and Amharic tenders floated by government offices, NGO’s, public companies and private incorporated companies is the most viewed service the website has been offering.
Its business directory that has nearly 5000 addresses of Ethiopian companies and foreign suppliers to Ethiopia is serving as a B2B portal.

The addition of business news to these already existing services will take the website one step further in providing integrated information on Ethiopian business.
