According to Ibrahim Khalid Tawab, Honorary Consul General of Ethiopia in Karachi, a group from Pakistan visited Ethiopia and spoke with the head of Ethiopian Airlines, who revealed that flights to Karachi would begin very soon.
The delegation, which was made up of businessmen, visited the country from March 5 to 10, reviewing trade and investment potential.
In addition to the deputy prime minister, foreign minister, head of the investment committee, and minister of state for diplomatic affairs, the delegation, led by Mr. Tawab, also met with a number of other senior government figures.
Through these discussions, the team was able to learn more about Ethiopia’s economic climate and consider ways that Pakistani and Ethiopian companies may work together.
With a population of 120 million, Ethiopia is a sizable market in the African continent, according to the consul general, who also said that Pakistan and Africa as a whole have a 350 million-person market. He claimed that Ethiopia served as the economic and commercial center of the continent of Africa and that there would soon be many prospects for trade between the two nations.
