Ethiopia has inaugurated the Unity Park built in the Grand National Palace.
The inauguration ceremony yesterday evening was attended by the Prime Minister, President Sahlework Zewde and leaeders from IGAD member states, and Chief administrators of Regional States.
Speaking at the inaugural ceremony, Prime Minister Abiy thanked those who contributed to the building and finalizing of the park.
We have to make a concerted effort to make our great country great again by drawing lessons from those who made this park a reality, he noted.
The park reflects the glorious and gloomy history of Ethiopia, the Prime Minister said.
Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyata, speaking at the ceremony, congratulated Ethiopians.
He reiterated the need to learn from our better past and build a better future for each country.
Other leaders of the sub-region also have congratulated Ethiopia on the occasion and transferred their messages.
Prime Minister Abiy also handed over certificates of recognition to domestic and foreign institutions that contributed their share to the realization of the park.
The park is a symbol of the Medemer, drawing better lessons from the past and capilazing on them for a better future, a political thought proposed by the Prime Minister since he came to power.
The park is open for visitors since today.
