Ambassador’s remarks

Congratulations to H.E. Mesfin Tasew, Group CEO and the Ethiopian Airlines family.

Relations between Ethiopia and India go back more than 2000 years. Traders had walked on foot, used animals/caravans. Connectivity brought about exchange of ideas.

Definitely, trade and connectivity had facilitated in exchange of ideas.

Commentators see similarities of rock engineering in the famous rock hewn churches of Lalibela and single rock temples in South India, especially in the state of Tamil Nadu. Perhaps, Ethiopian Airlines directly connecting Addis Ababa and Chennai tonight would be reviving that circle of connectivity.

As an Airline from Africa operating to many destinations in Africa, thousands of India nationals travel by Ethiopian Airlines every year. This bodes well, is good for our two countries. It will connect the people of the two countries and will facilitate more trade and business ties between India and Ethiopia & Africa.
