ACCRA, Ghana, August 20, 2013, (GNA) - "Africa Rising" is a buzz-phrase which gets thrown around quite casually these days. For some, there is the notion that Africa is rising from the ashes of a sordid past, "a broken continent finally finding its footing and place in the world".

Ethiopia's tallest building, completed in December 2011 in time for an AU summit the following month, includes a 2,500-seat conference hall.
