Flying Swans is an ambitious program that aims to set up a chain of cool logistics from Ethiopia to Djibouti. Cool like in cold: exporting fruit and vegetables by train and by sea in refrigerated containers. The potential is huge, as Ethiopia could generate millions in import income and create millions of jobs. The Netherlands, a global player in international logistics, intends to study the possibilities for Ethiopia. Minister Dagmawit Moges of Transport, in the presence of Minister Umar Hussein of Agriculture, signed an agreement to cooperate with the Netherlands yesterday.
