The Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa and the United States political capital Washington, DC. have renewed their sister city agreement.

Ethiopia’s capital Addis Ababa is known for hosting various international and regional organizations, which include the African Union (AU) headquarters and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UN-ECA).

The latest sister city agreement between Washington, DC, and Addis Ababa came as the visiting Mayor of Washington, DC, Muriel Bowser, signed an agreement with the Deputy Mayor of Addis Ababa, Takele Uma, in Addis Ababa on Monday, state-affiliated Fana Broadcasting Corporation (FBC) reported.

The agreement signed on Monday renewed their sister city ties that was signed back in 2013.

Bowser also on Monday met with Ethiopian President Sahle-Work Zewde at the Ethiopian National Palace, where they “discussed about ways of strengthening business relations between the cities of Addis Ababa and Washington DC,” according to state-run news agency ENA.
