Ethiopia is Banking on Cooperation with Sudan to Improve its Access to Ports

The Sudanese Sea Port Corporation will provide Ethiopia with necessary support as it makes use of Khartoum’s ports for the importation and exportation of commodities. Sudan’s Sea Port Corporation is also expected to offer assistance to Ethiopia’s state-owned shipping and logistics service – the Ethiopian Shipping and Logistics Service Enterprise. This is aimed at facilitating the importation of fertilizer. The idea of cooperating on port service and usage is of crucial significance to Ethiopia, who like several other nations across eastern Africa, is landlocked. Burundi, Rwanda, Uganda, and the Democratic Republic of Congo all have to transit goods through the Indian Ocean ports of Mombasa in Kenya and Dar es Salaam in Tanzania.
