Ethiopia, Kenya sign MoU to launch Moyale border service
Ethiopian Customs Commissioner Debele Kebetana, Kenya’s Head of Homeland Security and Kenya’s Head of Mission Wilson Gachokeki have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to strengthen trade ties between the two countries.
The agreement was reached in Addis Ababa today and private sector representatives from both countries are in talks.
During the signing ceremony, Customs Commissioner Debele Kebeta said Ethiopia and Kenya have a long-standing relationship.
He said Moyale’s border service would not only strengthen trade but also benefit the private sector.
Wilson Gachekeki said the agreement is an important milestone in trade between Ethiopia and Kenya as it facilitates trade, transportation, and citizen movement.
In particular, the construction of the Lapset corridor will increase the economic benefits of the two countries, he said.
Last year, Prime Minister Abi Ahmed and Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta inaugurated the Hawassa Moyale Joint Inspection Station.
