FM Gedu Holds Talks with Chinese Top Diplomat in Ethiopia

ADDIS ABEBA – Foreign Minister Gedu Andargachew has held talks with Chinese Ambassador to Ethiopia Tan Jian on Tuesday over bilateral issues of the nations.

Ministry of Foreign Affairs in a statement issued after the meeting said the two held talks on bilateral relations notably on trade, investment, tourism and politics.

Noting many Chinese investors have made significant investments in Ethiopia, Gedu expressed his hope that the favorable business environment in Ethiopia will also help increase the number of Chinese investors exponentially.

China will benefit a lot through strengthening its relation to Ethiopia, which is a gateway to the steadfastly and continuously growing African continent, according to the Foreign Minister.

Noting Chinese investors are keen to engage in various investment sectors in Ethiopia, Ambassador Jian on his part said he will work hard to get that edge.

The ambassador also assured Gedu of China’s continued support on the Entoto and Unity Park infrastructure projects.

He said he will do his level best to encourage Chinese tourists to visit Ethiopia too.

China will continue to support large-scale development projects being undertaken by the Ethiopian government, he added.
