#Ethiopia is one of the #EU’s important partners on the African continent, active in regional peace and security as well as on thematic international debates such as climate change.
Ethiopia and the European Union enjoy a multi-faceted, multi-dimensional nexus of cooperation. The EU supports the concerted efforts of Ethiopia to eradicate poverty, foster inclusive and sustainable economic, social and environmental development while promoting human rights, democracy, and other elements of good governance.
PM Dr. Abiy commended EU’s support to Ethiopia through its development cooperation, standing by Ethiopia to address its key challenges, such as food insecurity, a rapidly growing population, environmental pressures exacerbated by climate change, and a range of governance issues.
The EU and Ethiopia look back on 42 years of constructive bilateral relations in areas as diverse as development cooperation, trade and economic development, consolidation of democratic institutions, regional peace and security and migration.
Brussels hosts the Headquarters of the main EU institutions.
