ADDIS ABABA – Officials of Rimorchiatori Riuniti, an Italian Shipping Company, visited Ethiopia where they explored opportunities in the transport and logistics sector.

The minister briefed the visiting team about the activities that the government is undertaking to create a favorable atmosphere for investors.

The government is committed to supporting the shipping firm’s engagement in the transport and logistics sector of Ethiopia, Dagmawit told them.

The Rimorchiatori Riuniti delegation, for its part, expressed interest in looking forward to developing promising business in Ethiopia.

“Looking forward to developing promising business here,” the company said in a brief social media post after the meeting.
