Permanent mission of Ethiopian to the United Nations and Other International Organization


Message from the Ambassador

Welcome to the website of the Permanent Mission of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia to the United Nations Office at Geneva and Other International Organizations in Switzerland.

The Permanent Mission has dual functions of representing Ethiopia before international organizations in Geneva and Vienna, and serving as the Embassy of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia to Switzerland, and also accredited to the Republic of Austria, Republic of Bulgaria, Republic of Hungary and Romania.

In both its multilateral and bilateral functions, the Permanent Mission primarily is focused on contributing to and mobilizing support for the success of the Growth and Transformation Plan(GTP): a five-year strategic framework for development adopted by the Government of Ethiopia to sustain the rapid economic growth the country has been registering for the last seven years and to enable Ethiopia to meet the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

This website will be revamped to provide more detailed and current information on the multilateral work of the Permanent Mission.

In the meantime, I invite you to send us any comments, suggestions or queries you may have at or or visit us at the Permanent Mission located on the 9th floor of 56 Rue de Moillebeau (Petit-Saconnex) for consular services or economic and trade opportunities.

Our offices are open to the public every day from 9 a.m. till 1 p.m. and from 2.30 p.m. till 5.30 p.m.

The Ambassador welcomes any suggestion you may have on items/topics to be included in the forthcoming revamped website and ways to improve the services provided by the Permanent Mission

I thank you for your visit.

Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary, and
