Turkish-Ethiopian Business Council, which will serve under the umbrella of Turkey's Foreign Economic Relations Board (DEIK), has been established.
Releasing a written statement, DEIK said on Wednesday that number of business councils operating in Africa had risen to 8, and Turkish Ayka textiles company's executive board president Yusuf Aydeniz would serve as the head of Turkish-Ethiopian Business Council.
The statement said the plan to establish a business council had been made during the visit of Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan to Ethiopia in 2005.
"DEIK accelerated works to establish such a council during Ethiopian Prime Minister Meles Zenawi's visit to Turkey," the statement said.
Turkish exports to Ethiopia is 145 million USD and imports from Ethiopia is 42 million USD in 2007.
