For Decades, Ethiopia Has Been The Beneficiary Of A Trade Agreement With The United States That Grants Hundreds Of Millions Of Dollars Of Access | World | CNN



For decades, Ethiopia has been the beneficiary of a trade agreement with the United States that gives it hundreds of millions of dollars of favorable access to its markets. In recent years, this enabled Ethiopian Airlines, its flag carrier, to develop a global fleet and become one of the industry leaders. This relationship matters for both the United States and Ethiopia. For almost a year, conflict has raged in Ethiopia's Tigray region. Several CNN investigations have found evidence of atrocities by the Ethiopian government. CNN has obtained evidence that Ethiopian Airlines' cargo division has been transporting weapons between Ethiopia and Eritrea, in what experts believe may constitute a violation of international law and of that trade agreement with the United States.In response to the recent CNN investigation, Ethiopian Airlines says it is in compliance with all aviation regulations and "to the best of its knowledge and records, it has not carried any weapons of war on any of its routes by any of its aircraft." An American business spokesperson told CNN that in 2021 they would conduct a review of Ethiopia's eligibility for the Africa Growth and Opportunity Act, based on standards including adherence to internationally recognized workers' rights, the rule of law and human rights.An American business spokesperson told CNN that in 2021 they would conduct a review of Ethiopia's eligibility for the Africa Growth and Opportunity Act, based on standards including adherence to internationally recognized workers' rights, the rule of law and human rights.An American business spokesperson told CNN that in 2021 they would conduct a review of Ethiopia's eligibility for the Africa Growth and Opportunity Act, based on standards including adherence to internationally recognized workers' rights, the rule of law and human rights.
