President Uhuru Kenyatta, on the third day of his State visit to Ethiopia, visited the heart of the country’s automotive industry and said Kenya and Ethiopia had a lot to share in the motor vehicle assembly and aviation industries.
President Kenyatta emerged from a two-hour visit of the Bishoftu Automotive Industry and Dejen Aviation Industry convinced that Kenya had much to learn to lift its automotive sector and to rely more on its own resources. He said Kenya and Ethiopia should cooperate in technology exchange as the two countries enhance economic ties.
The Bishoftu Automobile Industry – a State-owned premiere motor vehicle assembly plant – produces military, police and commercial vehicles, while Dejen Aviation Industry produces light aircraft, including drones.
