The Ethiopian Ministry of Water, Irrigation, and Electricity and Xylem, a U.S. company, have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) in developing and implementing innovative water solutions through smart technology.
The Ethiopian Minister of Water, Irrigation and Electricity, Dr. Engineer Seleshi Bekele and CEO of Xylem, Mr. Patrick Decker, signed the MoU yesterday in the presence of U.S. Senior Commercial Officer, Chris Wilken.
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,” he said.
Through this MoU, Xylem will explore how its unique set of skills and technologies can be used to help Ethiopia address its water challenges.
