Mrs Gifti Abasiya Ababulgu, Ambassador of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia, has commended Ghana for its democratic dispensation and economic developments.

“The people and government of Ethiopia would continue to derive considerable inspirations, from Ghana's democratic achievement,” Mrs Ababulgu said in Accra on the occasion of the 22nd Anniversary of the overthrow of the Dergue Military Regime and the establishment of Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia.

Mrs Ababulgu expressed Ethiopia's desire to work and learn from Ghana, adding: "The mutual understanding at the highest level of leadership should be translated into concrete cooperation among the business peoples."

She said through the establishment of the new political order, Ethiopia has devoted its focus for peace.

Mrs Ababulgu said the recent peaceful transition of leadership following the passing away of the Prime Minister Meles, proved the maturity of the government.

She said the civility which the people demonstrated during the funeral and consequent events has clearly demonstrated that Ethiopians have come too far in upholding the democratic dispensation.

Mrs Ababulgu said the policies and strategies set by its visionary leader, the late Prime Minister Meles has helped stabilise the country and placed it on the economic growth path and he would be remembered for his exceptional leadership.

She said under the leadership of Meles, Ethiopia has registered a double digit economic growth for the last 10 years.

The economy is now one of the top 10 fastest growing economies in the world, she said.

Mrs Ababulgu said Ethiopia has contributed in ensuring peace and security in the region.

The country has worked tirelessly for peace in Somalia, Sudan, Rwanda, Burundi and Liberia through the deployment of Ethiopian peacekeepers to these nations.

As the African Union celebrates its Golden Jubilee, she urged the leaders to be united and committed to the ideals of the Union for peaceful existence.

Ms Sherry Ayittey, Minister of Health congratulated Ethiopian for its anniversary and expressed government desire to work assiduously to advance the economic growth of the country.

She said both countries have good relations and have played a significant role in the course of African unity since its establishment in 1963.
