Spread the News


One of our three business units of Origins Media PLC, Origins Business focuses on being the preferred business news and information media outlet of Ethiopia. We do this through our Radio Show and our business website.

The Radio Show

In September 2020, Origins Media in collaboration with Ethio FM 107.8 launched Ethio Trade and Investment Forum – a weekly radio show that runs every Saturday Morning from 9 – 10 AM and as of August 2021 additionally every Monday 6pm – 7pm. As the name indicates, the radio program, through its contents, aims to promote the trade and investment opportunities, assess gaps and bring to awareness the obstacles therein to both business people and relevant authorities.

The program reports major business and investment news, hosts prominent business people and government officials, interviews company CEOs, key players and relevant government officials about the current business and investment climate in specific sectors.

Additionally, Ethio Trade and Investment Forum’s social media pages and channels provide daily business updates.
