‘Ethiopian Day’ is a grand event that thousands of Ethiopians get together to strengthen their unity among themselves and to create an opportunity to showcase the Ethiopian culture.
Ethiopian Ambassador to the UAE, Suleiman Dedefo, commended Ethiopians living in the UAE for their active participation in various national development initiatives, including their financial and intellectual contributions.
