ADDIS ABABA: Ethiopia and Malaysia have signed a bilateral agreement on air transportation, the Ethiopian Civil Aviation Authority (ECAA) said.

The agreement was signed here by the Planning director of Air Transport at the ECAA, Endeshaw Yigezu, and Datuk Haji Kamaruzaman Mohd Noor, the deputy secretary-general at Malaysia’s Ministry of Transport.

The agreement would strengthen bilateral relations, said the general director of the Authority, Colonel Wosenyeleh Hunegnaw said on the occasion.
