The Ethiopian Prime Minister visits Czech economic sites

This was confirmed by the Office of the Prime Minister of Ethiopia on its account on the social networking site X, formerly Twitter. Ahmed arrived in Prague on Monday and was received by his counterpart Peter Fiala at an official reception at the government office.

In their bilateral exchanges, the two leaders pledged to enhance cooperation in the fields of agriculture, mining and tourism, while strengthening existing cooperation in the defense sector.

“We want to help Czech companies get new orders. “Ethiopia attracts investors from various fields to the country and we want to take advantage of this offer,” Fiala wrote on the same digital platform.

He revealed the possibility of closer cooperation in the field of mining and iron ore processing or in engineering, noting the African country’s interest in Czech tractors, stressing that trade between the Czech Republic and Ethiopia has the opportunity to grow significantly.

“Ethiopia is one of the fastest growing African economies and has great potential in various sectors. He concluded that Czech companies have experience and technologies that can contribute to the development of the local economy.

Last November 4, Fiala arrived in Addis Ababa on an official working visit, during which he also spoke with Ahmed about bilateral issues and ways to improve existing relations to promote mutual development.

A day later, he received an update on cooperation between the two countries in the hydraulic sector from Water and Energy President Habtamu Eteva, who highlighted the Czech financial contribution to this local sector.

Atifa revealed at the time that cooperation in hydrological studies amounts to more than 38 million euros and the Czech presence in the field of surface and groundwater research in the regions of Somalia, Sidama, the South and Amhara.

According to the Ethiopian News Agency, the Czech Geological Survey (CGS) has a long history of cooperation, including hydrogeological mapping of Ethiopia, since the late 1970s.

The latter information is essential for managing local water resources, under increasing pressure from population growth and climate change.
