US Company signs MoU with Ethiopian Government to explore cooperation in addressing water challenges


U.S. Senior Commercial Officer Chris Wilken attended a signing ceremony for a memorandum of understanding (MOU) between the Ethiopian Ministry of Water, Irrigation, and Electricity, (MOWIE) and Xylem, a leading U.S. company in developing and implementing innovative water solutions through smart technology.
At the event, Chris highlighted the importance of strong partnerships, “As Ethiopia moves ahead with its impressive reform effort, the United States sees a role for American companies like Xylem, to explore how they can build partnerships that create opportunities for Ethiopia and the U.S. alike.”
“From the United States’ perspective, partnerships should be mutually beneficial. That principle of mutual benefit is what underlies our concept of a successful partnership. Partnerships are about identifying an opportunity and applying resources for a result that benefits everyone involved.”
