Arega has been overseeing 26 companies under the umbrella of MIDROC for the past 22 years since his return from the United States. MIDROC Technology Group and MIDROC Ethiopia Investment Group are operating in a wide variety of sectors, including agriculture and agro-industry, construction, hospitality and tourism, manufacturing, mining, oil and gas distribution, real estate development, transport (including air transport), trade and commerce, health care, education and training.
