Turkey’s ambassadors to Addis Ababa called on his country’s businessmen to follow the privatization program initiated by Ethiopia and invest in the country. In an exclusive interview with Anadolu Agency on the sidelines of the 10th Ambassadors’ Conference in capital Ankara, Fatih Ulusoy said that the African country, which is seen as a closed economy, started a privatization program.
“Turkish businessmen and investors should follow this situation closely,” Ulusoy said. “As embassy, we are always ready to support them,” he added. Ulusoy stated that Ethiopian government has also initiated “e-visa” program for Turkish citizens.
“With this [e-visa] application, Turkish citizens can get Ethiopian visa via Internet without going to consulates,” he said.
Ulusoy added that the e-visa - which will take three working days to process, will also enable businessmen to attend fairs in the country. Emphasizing the importance of trade investments between the two countries, Ulusoy said that Turkey’s investments in Ethiopia in the field of education also continued.
