Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed met with Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallström on 1/3/2019 morning.

The two parties discussed on Ethio-Swedish bilateral relations and she reiterated Sweden’s continued support to Ethiopia.

Ethiopia and Sweden are also cooperating in many development areas including environmental protection and strengthening of the private sector to actively participate in the economic development of the country, it was indicated.

With a focus on helping Ethiopia advance on areas of environment, climate change, job creation, human rights and democracy, Sweden granted 400 million USD in support and cooperation with the Horn of Africa Region.

Ethiopia was one of leading recipients of Swedish development support in the areas of integration and capacity building last year.
