Ethiopia is our key partner in Sub-Saharan Africa,” said Deputy Minister Joanna Wronecka at a meeting with Ethiopia’s Foreign Minister Workneh Gebeyehu on Monday. “I believe that our regular political contacts and the growing presence of Polish companies in Ethiopia will allow us to tap into the vast potential of cooperation between our countries,” she added.
