Ethiopia and China have signed a partnership agreement to invest in energy transmission and distribution lines for the nation's mega projects. The project will build power transmission and distribution lines to 16 industrial parks, part of the Meqelle to Djibouti railway line and to other cities in the country.

The agreement was signed last week as part of the second Belt & Road Forum for International Cooperation held in Beijing, China. Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed (PhD) had traveled to Beijing to attend the Forum with Ethiopian delegates. The Forum has also brought the news about China's cancellation of all interest-free loans it had advanced to Ethiopia through the end of 2018.

Ethiopia on Friday inaugurated a Chinese-built power distribution, rehabilitation and upgrading project. The project, which is part of larger nationwide program involving eight major cities, will mainly benefit the grid system of the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa.

The seven other cities are Jimma, Dire Dawa, Bahir Dar, Mekele, Hawassa, Adama and Dessie. Ethiopian State Minister of Water, Irrigation and Electricity Frehiwot Woldehanna told the inauguration ceremony that the newly inaugurated project will have a "great significance to Ethiopia's development endeavor."

"Despite various achievements over the past years, Ethiopia still has huge deficiencies in terms of access to electric energy," he said, adding that the government considers access to electric energy as "a prerequisite to socioeconomic development."
