Ambassadors Greeting

Welcome to the Royal Danish Embassy in Addis Ababa

We cover Ethiopia, Djibouti, South Sudan, Sudan, African Union, ECOWAS, IGAD and UNECA. A diverse and very exiting both bilateral and multilateral agenda.


We know that being placed in the diplomatic hub of Africa carries a certain duty. There are more than 100 embassies, close to 30 UN agencies, a strong EU presence and a multiplicity of non-state actors. I and the competent and committed team at the Embassy stands ready to reach out - to Ethiopian state and non-state actors, to regional key actors, to our fellow diplomatic peers in Addis, to other Danish Embassies on the African continent and to Danish businesses that seek to do business in Ethiopia and the region.


Our mission is to further strengthen and deepen the strategic partnership between Ethiopia and Denmark, between Denmark and the African Union as well as the other countries and regional organisations to which we are accredited. Come partner with us in this endeavour.


If you would like to explore our activities in greater depth, I invite you to follow us on Twitter and Facebook.


This website is meant to provide easy access to information about Denmark and Ethiopia. Should you need additional information, please do not hesitate to contact us at the Embassy.


Karin Poulsen, Ambassador
