President Mulatu Teshome said the economic relations between Ethiopia and Mexico needs to be consolidated.
The president held talks on Tuesday with Ambassador Alfredo Miranda, Mexico’s departing ambassador to Ethiopia.
On the occasion, President Mulatu called on Mexican investors to come to Ethiopia and exploit the favorable trade and investment environment in the country.
Praising Ambassador Miranda for the efforts he made in strengthening the relations between Ethiopia and Mexico, Mulatu urged the Ambassador to help attract more Mexican investors to come to Ethiopia.
Mexican investors will benefit if they particularly engage in manufacturing as Ethiopia has taken measures that motivate investors in the sector, he said.
The President thanked Mexico for supporting Ethiopia’s bid to a non-permanent seat at the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) and called for further support to Dr. Tedros Adhanom’s candidature to the post of WHO Director General.
Ambassador Miranda for his part confirmed his country will support Dr. Tedros’ candidature, also stressing that the longstanding and historical relations between the two countries would be further enhanced at all levels.
The ambassador added that he will do his level best to attract Mexican investors to Ethiopia.
The departing ambassador said Ethiopia and Mexico would share experience to advance South-South Cooperation.
