MIDROC Ethiopia and Marriott International have signed an agreement to place the management of a hotel in the compound of the African Union headquarters under the latter's Westin Hotels & Resorts brand. MIDROC, under the ownership of business tycoon Mohammed Hussein Al-Amoudi, began construction of the hotel in 2012, and has been negotiating with Marriott to take over management since. The two finalised the deal during a signing ceremony last week attended by Jemal Ahmed, CEO of MIDROC Investment Group, and Yasin Munshi, director of East African lodging development for Marriott International. Westin Hotels & Resorts is a hotel chain owned by Marriot International.
