The Ethiopian consulate in the Chinese city of Chongqing has recently held an event to introduce the East African country’s abundant investment opportunities, an Ethiopian official said on Friday.

Speaking to journalists, Dina Mufti, Spokesperson for Ethiopia Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA), said the Ethiopian consulate in Chongqing earlier this month held an event to promote the east African country’s abundant investment opportunities.

“Additionally, the Ethiopian consulate in Chongqing also introduced to Chinese audience Ethiopian coffee products and Ethiopian coffee making process as part of Ethiopia’s economic diplomacy initiative,” said Mufti.
