Exhibition Showcasing Ethiopia’s Diplomacy set for Next Week

A diplomatic exhibition focusing on Ethiopia’s past and current diplomatic achievements is set to be held next week, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA)

The Ethiopian Diplomacy Week will take place ‪from January 11 to February 2, 2024‬.

MoFA’s spokesperson Ambassador Meles Alem told the press today that showcasing Ethiopia’s long history of diplomacy is one way to highlight its role in Africa, the Horn of Africa, and global venues.

The exhibition aims to inspire Ethiopians to discover more about their country’s diplomatic history and to help them appreciate its potential, build trust, and contribute in the future, the ambassador said.

Per the spokesperson, the event is also important in preserving the institution’s memory and showing the potential for new diplomatic avenues in the future.

In connection with that, Meles said books documenting the diplomatic activities of the foreign ministry as an institution for the last 116 years and a diplomatic journal, will be officially released.

The exhibition will be held at the Science Museum in Addis Ababa under the theme “From an African Hub to the World Stage.”
