April 24, 2018
Addis Ababa, April 24, 2018 (FBC) –President Mulatu Teshome and Polish
President Andrzej Duda held talks in Warsaw, Poland today.
Bilateral trade was the main subject of talks between the two presidents, according
to Radio Poland.
President Mulatu said his country was interested in building closer trade ties with
Poland and in attracting investment and transferring technologies.
President Duda said the Ethiopian market was interesting and that it was worthwhile
to locate business activity there, recalling his visit last year to the Ethiopian factory
where Polish Ursus tractors were assembled.
“Ethiopia is a huge market, there are more than 100 million residents, more than
100 million potential consumers; of course, Ethiopia is not wealthy yet but it is a
quickly developing country,” Duda said.
President Duda said he looked forward to meeting Teshome again in New York in
May when Poland takes over the month-long rotating presidency of the United
Nations Security Council. Both Poland and Ethiopia are temporary members of the
Duda also said he hoped Ethiopia would open an embassy in Poland and that
direct flights between Warsaw and Addis Ababa could be set up, adding that this
would significantly improve trade and tourism.
