The most powerful country in the "Black World" would actually be Brazil as it is the second biggest black country by population in the world next to Nigeria.

In that case, most powerful country in the Latin World would be Argentina.

Wrong!

Even if Brazil had a larger black population than Ethiopia, it is not a black nation because it has an even larger white population. Moreover, Brazil has always been ruled by whites from colonial times to this day.

Ethiopia, on the other hand, is 100 percent black. Black government, black military, black population, and black president.

To add, Brazil doesn't even have a larger black population than Ethiopia. 7.6% of it's population is black, so around 16M people. The rest are white and multiracial, some minorities too.

METECH Inspirational Documentary Film for Young Ethiopians

This documentary gives an overview of all the things METEC is involved in by giving a group of young Ethiopians a tour of the many METEC facilities across the country. I thought it was very interesting and informative.

They are assembled in Ethiopia by METEC (military owned corporate) under licence (from Russia or Ukraine), with very minimum modifications, surprisingly METEC doesn't think its important enough that we know the name, they probably call them Bishoftu armored fighting vehicle, since most things that they manufacture tend to be called Bishoftu,( the name of the town the METEC complex is based in,) . They are a Russian (Tiger) or a Ukrainian (Spartan) model, to me they look a lot closer to the Ukrainian Spartan armored fighting car. But soon we may be producing vehicles fully made at home check the post below.

Ethiopia to manufacture automobiles for the first time

(EBC, September 19, 2015)- Ethiopia is set to manufacture automobiles, as well as some military hardware, the head of the Ethiopian Power Engineering Industry (EPEI) said.

EPEI General Manager Major Assefa Yohannes said that production would begin within two months.

EPEI is part of the state-owned Metals and Engineering Corporation (METEC), one of the 17 companies in that group.

Ethiopia needs more cars. With a population of 94 million, there are only 587,400 cars on the road, according to the Ministry of Transport. That number increases by about 10 percent each year, the ministry said.

Ethiopia has only two vehicles per 1,000 people.

Located in the city of Mekele – 770 kilometers (478.4 kilometers) north of the capital Addis Ababa, the engine manufacturing plant will produce a number of different types of engines for light and heavy duty cars and tractors," Yohannes said. "As Ethiopia finds itself on the path of fast-tracked economic growth, such industries will be vital to sustain the economic gains being registered."

"The Mekele engine manufacturing plant will be one of the key production facilities, and we will not end there," he added.

Import substitution is a major objective of the engine industry, Yohannes explained, and to become competitive, the factory will be producing quality engines of the Euro-three to Euro-five emissions standards," he said, adding the factory has a license from largest Chinese engine manufacturing company – Yuchai.

"The engines to be manufactured will be sold mainly to the Bushoftu Automative Industry (BAI) enabling it to become the first auto maker in Ethiopia," he said. It will also supply engines, including industrial ones, to other factories and car assembly companies operating in Ethiopia.

So far, the multibillion Bushoftu Automative Industry (BAI) has been engaged in the assemblage, overhaul and upgrading of autos for civil use (both light and heavy duty), as well as armored vehicles and tanks.

The light-duty automobile production line has a capacity of producing 60 vehicles per day, BAI spokesman Lieutenant Amanuel Tsegaye said.

The output capacity of the heavy-duty vehicle production factory is 24 vehicles daily. Buses are being assembled according to need assessment. So far, the factory had handed over 210 buses to the Addis Ababa city bus enterprise, while it is assembling 350 other buses upon order.

"The African Union and the United Nations also have some armored vehicles made by BAI for their peace keeping operations in Africa," he added.
