Tunisia and Ethiopia cooperate with Asia on infrastructures

15 December 2010

Japan wants to increase its investments in Tunisia and to strengthen bilateral cooperation in the domain of renewable energies, especially in wind energy, via a partnership.

The spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign affairs in Japan, Mr. Sobashima, made this announcement at the Arab-Japanese Economic Forum  which was held from 11 - 12 December in Tunis.

"Japan attaches great importance to strengthening its relations with other countries and in particular with Arab countries, and does so by its exports of services, equipment and in the domain of technology, in order to improve the infrastructures of the beneficiary countries", he explained, quoted by the newspaper La Presse.

Likewise, last Monday in Addis Ababa, an Ethiopian and a Chinese delegation met to discuss the development of their bilateral relations, reports the Xinhua press agency.

The Ethiopian Minister of Finances, Sufian Ahmed, and the vice-president of the Import-Export Bank of China, Liu Liange, particularly discussed the strengthening of their cooperation in the development of infrastructures.
