A friend from the East
India and Ethiopia on Thursday signed agreements on trade, communication and media to boost bilateral ties as President Mulatu Teshome (PhD) held talks with his Indian counterpart Ram Nath Kovind. The two presidents also addressed the India- Ethiopia Business Dialogue which was held at Sheraton Addis. The India Business Forum is the first partner-country forum of its kind in Ethiopia and represents more than 100 Indian companies. Kovind’s visit is the first by an Indian president to Ethiopia in 45 years since President V V Giri's trip in 1972.
