The agreements were signed after a closed door meeting between the Indian President Shri Ram Nath Kovind and his Ethiopian counterpart Mulatu Teshome at the National Palace in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa.
In a short press briefing, the Indian president said he wanted to strengthen bilateral ties with Ethiopia.

He added that India will provide a credit line to the tune of $95 million to Ethiopia for an electric transmission line. He also announced $2 million for purchase of food grain.
Teshome said the discussion highlighted “…the great importance Ethiopia is attaching to the multifaceted relations between the two countries”.
