A message from the Australian Ambassador, HE Mr Peter Doyle

Welcome to the website of the Australian Embassy in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.   

The Embassy has responsibility for Australia’s relations with Ethiopia, South Sudan, Djibouti, the Central African Republic, the African Union, the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa, and the Intergovernmental Authority on Development.

Across these countries and multilateral organisations, Australia promotes global cooperation to support a stable, prosperous Africa. We have a strong stake in the economic development of the region and much to offer in the areas of mining, agriculture and education.

Australia is a diverse and multicultural society. We have an open economy and a firm commitment to forging positive partnerships around the globe.

I appreciate your interest in Australia. I hope this website will assist you to understand more about our country, its government and its people.

Peter Doyle
