ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia and Ghana have reached an understanding to further enhance economic co-operation to benefit the peoples of the two countries, says outgoing Ghanaian Ambassador to Ethiopia Albert Yankey.
The diplomat made a farewell call on Ethiopian President Mulatu Teshome here Tuesday and discussed with him ways of further strengthening bilateral economic co-operation, people-to-people relations, peace and stability.
President Mulatu said the long-standing co-operation between the two sides had not reached the desired level yet and highlighted the ample opportunities awaiting Ghanaians to invest in Ethiopia.
The outgoing ambassador, who is ending a four-year posting here, said the bilateral co-operation was growing but agreed with the president that the countries could still do more to enhance ties.
The ambassador noted that the two countries needed to formalize, develop and make it possible us to build up co-operation.
Ethiopia and Ghana signed a general co-operation agreement to facilitates exchanges in culture and tourism, communication, information and media in 2014.
