ISLAMABAD: Ethiopia’s Ambassador to Pakistan Jemal Beker Abdula said his country is keen to further strengthen trade ties with Pakistan by establishing institutional linkages between two states.

In a meeting with Trade Development Authority of Pakistan (TDAP) Director General (Islamabad) Muhammad Naseer, envoy underlined need to sign accords between trading organisations of both countries to ensure bilateral trade under a legal system. “There is also a need to identify key areas which have potential to boost trade between two countries,” he said, adding Pakistan could import coffee, red beans, and others, while sugar, rice, and pharmaceutical equipment might be exported to Ethiopia, Ambassador said.

“Our government is strongly looking forward to building a strong relationship with Pakistan, which is located in a very important region and has major economies in its neighbourhood,” he remarked. Ethiopian airlines would soon start its operations in Pakistan, further strengthening people-to-people contacts by promoting tourism and cultural activities.

Naseer highlighted contours of Pakistan’s “Look Africa” policy and assured envoy of all-out support and facilitation for boosting bilateral trade between two countries. He expressed his interest in holding joint conferences to enhance trade between both countries by promoting business-to-business contacts. He said Pakistan had vast opportunities to export its products to Ethiopia, which had already been importing various goods, including textiles from Russia, India and China.
