“In particular, it is playing an important role in the success of the China One Belt One Road Initiative by availing critical air infrastructure that is boosting cargo export and import between Africa and China. I wish to thank all my colleagues at Ethiopian Cargo & Logistics for this well- deserved recognition and encourage them to work even harder to support Africa’s economic transformation.”
