After the meeting, PM Abiy joined the second edition of the G20 Compact with Africa (CwA) meeting currently underway in Berlin.
At the G20 Compact with Africa, Prime Abiy wooed investors to partner with the government in key areas by presenting the many initiatives underway to create a conducive investment climate in Ethiopia.
“Ethiopia offers a competitive investment opportunity. I would like to take this opportunity to mention the strategic engagement we just started ….as a concrete example of what the compact initiative can deliver when focused on targeted investment, recruitment, and facilitation.
“We would like to see similar investment from G20 countries and hope this platform continues to play a driving and catalytical role,” Abiy said in his address.
His last stop on the three-city tour is the German city of Frankfurt, where he will meet with Ethiopians from different European countries.
