Ethiopia and Israel to Broaden Areas of Cooperation


The Ethiopia-Israel consultative meeting is said to be important to navigate ‘inexhaustible’ potential areas for cooperation between Ethiopia and Israel.

The two countries held a joint consultative meeting in Addis Ababa, ahead of the planned high-level visit between both countries next month.

Ethiopia’s Ambassador to Israel Hilawe Yosef said that the consultative meeting focuses on investment, development cooperation, people-to-people ties as well as science and technology, among other issues, and will also serve as groundwork before the high-level visit.

With regard to investment, the talks aim to navigate areas of collaboration in many sectors including agriculture, where the Israeli have advanced practices in this aspect and have high productivity despite being situated in arid area, while Ethiopia is aiming to transform its agriculture using modern technology, said Ambassador Hilawe.
