 Chinese Investments Create Job Opportunities  for Many Ethiopians: State Minister

ADDIS ABABA - Chinese investments in Ethiopia over the past two decades have created job opportunities for many Ethiopians, said Ethiopian State Minister of Foreign Affairs Aklilu Hailemichael on Friday.
The state minister made the remarks at China Zhejiang-Ethiopia Trade and Investment Symposium co-hosted by the Ethiopian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Chinese Council for the Promotion of International Trade Zhejiang Provincial Committee (CCPIT Zhejiang) in Ethiopia’s capital Addis Ababa.
The government of China and companies from China have over the past two decades “invested significantly in Ethiopia, creating job opportunities for a large number of Ethiopians,” Hailemichael said.
“My country also expects even more through the Belt and Road initiative that China launched with a focus on economic cooperation and connectivity among nations,” he said.
He noted that the growing investment and trade ties between “the two sisterly countries” are part of Ethiopia’s “historic relations with China covering a range of areas including but not limited to trade, culture, education and development cooperation.”
“The relations between the two sisterly nations have been based upon diplomatic adherence, mutual respect, win-win formulation, shared development and mutual understanding,” he said. (Xinhua)
