The Ethiopian Prime Min­is­ter, Mr Haile Mariam De­salegn, has in­vited busi­ness in­ter­ests in Sey­chelles to in­vest in Ethiopia, par­tic­u­larly in that coun­try's tourism in­dus­try, given Sey­chelles' wealth of know-how in that field.

The Ethiopian Premier ex­pressed this wish dur­ing a bi­lat­eral meet­ing with Sey­chelles Pres­i­dent, Mr Danny Faure, who was in Ethiopia to at­tend the 28th Or­di­nary Sum­mit of the African Union, his first since ac­ced­ing to the pres­i­dency in Oc­to­ber last year.

Dur­ing the bi­lat­eral, which was also at­tended on the Sey­chelles side by For­eign Sec­re­tary, Marie-Louise Pot­ter, and Am­bas­sador, Joseph Nour­rice, the Ethiopian Prime Min­is­ter agreed for a co­op­er­a­tion agree­ment to be signed be­tween his coun­try and Sey­chelles, while the two heads of Gov­ern­ment also spoke about the need to ex­tend co­op­er­a­tion to ar­eas like the fight against ter­ror­ism, re­form of the African Union and cli­mate change, with a view of work­ing out com­mon po­si­tions in in­ter­na­tional fora. The set­ting up of a Joint Min­is­te­rial Com­mis­sion will be the key driver of the co­op­er­a­tion be­tween Sey­chelles and the land­locked coun­try of the Horn of Africa.

Speak­ing to the lo­cal me­dia after his meet­ing with the Prime Min­is­ter at State House, Pres­i­dent Faure said that bi­lat­eral re­la­tions be­tween the two coun­tries will fly to greater heights.
