My name is Almaz Belayneh and I am working for Ministry of Mines, Petroleum and Natural Gas. I studied my first degree in Geology from Addis Ababa University. I also completed my post graduate studies with masters in business administration (MBA) in Industrialization and Management from Maastricht school of management in the Netherlands. I am now working as an advisor to the Minister’s office since April 2010. Before taking this position, I worked as a plan expert, team leader and acting head of planning and programming department. I also led the human resources development and management department for one year between 2009 and 2010.
