Trudeau:- "This visit is a chance for us to take our partnership and our friendship to the next level. We have an incredible opportunity before us. We are much more interested in building economic partnerships going forward"
They spent more than two hours together at a private meeting, an expanded bilateral meeting with officials and ministers from both countries, and the tour at Unity Park.
The public park and museum was previously private space and is one of Abiy’s pet projects. At the end of the tour, Abiy and Trudeau had coffee and shared some Ethiopian food, and continued talking for more than 20 minutes.
Abiy:- "Ethiopia is grateful for the diplomatic relationship between the two countries, which began more than 50 years ago. Canada’s influence actually began much earlier than that with missionaries and Canadian aid dollars. We are very much grateful about it,”
