IPDC, Djibouti Ports Freezone Authority agree to scale up cooperation
In light of further strengthening the Ethio-Djibouti trade and investment cooperation, a delegation from Industrial Parks Development Corporation (IPDC) is paying a working visit in Djibouti from May 24-28.
During the visit, the delegation was warmly welcomed by the Chairman of Djibouti Ports and Freezone (DPFZA), Mr. Abubaker Omar Hadi, and held discussions on various issues ranging from service to infrastructure and synchronization of digital systems.
The delegation has paid visits to Djibouti International Free Trade Zone and Doraleh Multipurpose Port (DMP), among others.
The delegation has also made extensive discussions with CEO of Djibouti Port Community System (DPCS) underscoring the urgent need for integrating the system with EIPDC.
It is to be known that nearly 125 foreign and local investors operating inside the thirteen Industrial Parks in Ethiopia use Djibouti’s Port and Freezone to import their raw materials and capital goods as well as export their products to the global market.
