Ethiopia and Switzerland want to further develop and deepen their bilateral relations. With this aim in mind, a Swiss delegation led by Federal President Simonetta Sommaruga will travel to Ethiopia for three days at the end of October 2015 for an official working visit. Among the subjects to be discussed are economic relations as well as humanitarian challenges and migration policies in Ethiopia and its neighbouring countries. Ethiopia is a young democracy. Nevertheless, much still bears witness to its past during the era of the Empire of Abyssinia. President Sommaruga, addressed as 'Her Excellency, Mrs. President', will deliver a speech to The Parliament in Addis Ababa on federalism and the rule of law.
