On Sunday 4th October, the Ministry of Communication (in charge of posts and telecommunications) of Djibouti and our Director General Mohamed ASSOWEH welcomed a high level delegation led by the Ethiopian Finance Minister, Ahmed Shide. This comes on the back of our announcement last month of the Extended Partnership between Djibouti Telecom and Ethiopia, who are one of our most important partners.
We were very pleased and honoured to receive this high level delegation from Ethiopia as these are not easy times for global travel! Ethio Telecom and Djibouti Telecom have a long-standing partnership in various areas including international gateway, interconnect voice capacity, interconnection and roaming services among others.
Discussions were based on how we can strengthen our long standing relationship and how Djibouti Telecom can better serve Ethiopia’s millions of Internet users – Ethiopia uses Djibouti’s cable centre for Internet connectivity.
We are hopeful of increased and mutually beneficial ties with Ethiopia and thank all those that travelled to our telecommunications cable station Haramous for this event.
