Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, May 20, 2018:   His Excellency Dr Abiy Ahmed, Prime Minister of Ethiopia, visited Masdar City in Abu Dhabi on Saturday. He was received by a delegation led by HE Dr Sultan Al Jaber, Minister of State and Chairman of Masdar (Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company); Mohamed Jameel Al Ramahi, CEO of Masdar; Yousef Baselaib, Masdar’s Executive Director for Sustainable Real Estate; and Bader Al Lamki, Masdar’s Executive Director for Clean Energy.

Prime Minister Ahmed, who assumed office in April, was briefed on Masdar’s mandate to deliver on the renewable energy vision of Abu Dhabi and to catalyze clean technology investments in the Arab world and international markets.

Prime Minister Ahmed also witnessed first-hand Masdar’s investment in sustainable mobility, taking a short ride in one of the city’s iconic Personal Rapid Transit vehicles, and was briefed on the locally designed and manufactured Eco-Bus.  

The tour concluded with a visit to selected laboratories of the Masdar Institute, part of the Khalifa University of Science and Technology.
