During his official visit, Dr Workneh will discuss with his Emirati counterpart, Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, on ways to strengthen the relations between the two countries.

Addis Ababa, December 4, 2017 (FBC) – Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ethiopia, Dr Workneh Gebeyehu, met with Nigerian tycoon investor, Aliko Dangote, in Abuja Nigeria today.


Mr. Aliko Dangote noted that the various developmental projects in Ethiopia make the country a beautiful bride to foreign investors.

Ethiopia, whose economy recently overtook Kenya’s, is now the fastest-growing economy in sub-Saharan Africa, according to a new World Bank report.
