Addis Ababa, May 9, 2024 – On May 8, 2024, U.S. Ambassador to Ethiopia Ervin  Massinga, together with State Minister of Tourism Sileshi Girma, officially opened a photo  exhibition at the National Museum in Addis Ababa marking the 120-year anniversary of  diplomatic relations between the United States and Ethiopia. The exhibition serves as a  powerful reflection of the enduring and profound bilateral relationship between the two  nations. 

Entitled “A Visual Journey of Bilateral Relations,” the exhibition showcases 28 thoughtfully  selected images that portray the deep connections between the two nations. From May  8th to May 26th, the exhibition will be open to the public at the National Museum, followed  by displays at the Institute of Ethiopian Studies on the Addis Ababa University campus from  May 29th to June 8th and at the Hyatt Regency from June 17th to July 7th. Each venue will  offer a curated collection of photographs that capture the essence of the bilateral  relationship across various sectors, including health, education, agriculture, and economic  development. 

“We are thrilled to unveil this exhibition as a celebration of the enduring friendship  between the United States and Ethiopia,” stated Ambassador Massinga. “Through these  powerful images, we aim to foster a deeper understanding and appreciation of the shared  values and aspirations that bind our nations.” 

In addition to the physical exhibits, the entire collection will be made available on the  Embassy website, providing a virtual experience for a global audience.

The exhibition serves not only as a platform for cultural exchange but also underscores the  commitment of both nations to strengthening their partnership for the benefit of their  people and the world. Additional venues for showcasing the exhibition will be announced  on our social media platforms.

  1. One lesson from 120 years of bilateral relations is that the US has never been a trusted friend. Always sided with groups that did not represent the majority or the welfare of the nation. Sad. Carter mid 1977, Clinton, 1993, Obama 2015, Biden 2022.
