Czech Prime Minister Petr Fiala left Prague on Friday for an eight-day trip to Africa, during which he is visiting the east and west African countries of Ethiopia, Kenya, Nigeria, Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire. Although primarily a trade mission, the trip is also intended to deepen cooperation in other areas such as security and migration.

Addressing the Czech-Ethiopian Business Forum in Addis Ababa this weekend, Prime Minister Fiala told the assembled business leaders that Czechia needed to deepen trade relations with Ethiopia beyond importing the country’s legendary coffee.

The main purpose of the prime minister’s trip is to conclude new contracts and find new business opportunities, so accompanying him is a roughly twenty-member-strong business delegation representing several sectors, as Jan Rafaj, president of the Union of Industry and Transport, which organised the trade mission, details.
