Ethiopian Shipping Lines training institute launched
By Yohannes Anberbir
Ethiopian Shipping Lines (ESL) S.C. opened its long-delayed Maritime Institute on November 14 in Debre Zeit. ESL has been struggling for more than five years to convince the government about its plan to construct the training institute. After finally receiving the go-ahead, it erected the institute in Debre Zeit, 44 kilometres east of Addis Ababa in Oromia Regional State, next to Lake Babogaya.
The flag carrier, established in 1964, last year shipped in 26 percent of the country's import, using its nine vessels and well-trained Ethiopian marine personnel.
The institute, which became functional last week, is expected to assist ESL's expanding operation by providing new trained marine workers, and also hopes to provide workers to foreign companies engaged in the shipping business, according to Ambachew Abreha, managing director of the shipping line.

I do not know what to say,haahahaaa.!
Weyannes sold out our land to shabia and made us landlock. And now the DEAD ethiopa MARIN is selling its GHOST ships to Find the NEW world.hahahha..
The Arab Proverb say ( Countery without port its like House without door )
We need our ports back
You will die soon with your envy. The mental institute in paris where you are treated reported that your condition is deteriorating eveyday, you are even seeking assisted suicide. I hope they will take off your life support soon. Very sad ending for an old prostitute. By the way it is better if you stop reading Ethiopian web sites. It will give you more strength.
No port but maritime institute,what a joke.Ambachew Abreha,another parasite woyane is at the healm of Ethiopian shiping lines.Is it the republic of Tigre land(# 11) or Ethiopia?
Teah,the coming election should confirm ethiopian restauration of its port assab so as to vote tose to be committed to retain;or the party in exercise to get down from governance through appologise befor election in which way the public must ammend the constitution to return the lost ports and borders and later to proceed the planned election.if not,we will be locked for ever.Patriots think over it.
One thing you guys need to remember is that Ethiopia is the only east African country with it’s own Flag ship!
Kenya, Sudan, Eritrea, Djibouti down to South until you reach South Africa – All of them do not have a single Flag ship. I truly admire Ethiopian Shipping Lines. It is a very profitable & effective company like the Ethiopian Airlines.
Yes I agree that the Zenawi’s EPRDF stand with respect to Sea port is very strange and annoying.
Good job Ethiopian Shipping Lines
What happen if Djibouti decide to have it’s own shipping line and impose a 50% tarrif on foreign ships? Don’t tell me it wouldn’t happen. As far as Djibouti is concerned we are foreigners. Then what? Move to Berbera?
It’s like Ethiopian Airlines having it’s HQ at Nairobi airport!
I have been trying to understand the rational behind the claim of many Ethiopians that the ports in Eritrea belong to Ethiopia. I am trying to understand the historic or legal claim to those ports.
For those of you who are only interested in name calling and insults, please do not reply. For those that have civil and respectful input, please reply as I would like to hear what you have to say.
daniel,there’s no mystry to your question as to the ownership of assab!Sure it belongs to eritriya as far as the UN is also concerned with.BUt the fact remains ethiopia’s future and existance demands it that it have a reliable port(asab).Inorder to achieve that,as much as esayas and meles hate each other’s guts,they have to work out a solution that benifits both countries,and at least for the sake of lasting peace saying bygones be bygones.I see a couple of viable scenarios such as leasing assab for 50 or 100 years,a la djbouti to french.Or perhaps Eritriya might just choose to out right sell asab to ethiopia since it’s of most importance that the two sisterly countries live with each other in a lasting peace.
If none of that pan out, there’s such a thing as annexing assab since perhaps the majority of affar people would rather join ethiopia if asked to chose a side between the two countries.The reason as to why it’s extremely important for ethiopia to secure assab back is because,ethiopia is the only landlocked country in the world with the highest number of population at 80 million and that’s even supposed to reach 150 million in twenty years time.The country Ethiopia even with the support of world powers cannot and will not be able to sustain these many people even with the help of world powers.Therefore ,the benifit of getting assab back by any means necessary outweighs the risk of faceing the UN’s security council rath and the two countries going back to War once more !!
Just like you - I have been trying, in the first place, to understand the rational behind the existence/creation of the country called Eritrea.
For all this mess,however, King Haileselasie to be blamed for dismantling the Federation…..anyways, that’s a bygone history.
As everyone is respecting your right to be independent with a free country, You similarly, should respect the right for self determination of minorities - i.e. we are not asking Assab directly to come to Ethiopia - We are asking you to respect self determination of the Afar people - It is their God given right
What? Woyane has not sold this one yet? Well, there is still time…
Let me see if I understand you correctly:
So because Ethiopia is in need of a port, Eritrea should be forced to lease or sell some its rightful resources? Peace can only last between our two countries if Eritrea gives in to Ethiopia’s demands in regards to the ports?
How does that even sound rational in any way? Would you be wiling to give up some of Ethiopia’s resources to another country even if it is for compensation for the sake of peace?
The question of the Afar people has no validity what so ever. The Afar and the Tigre people are one of the most patriotic Eritreans out there. Any idea that they would turn their back on who they are is insane. Remember, all of Eritrea had DID choose indepenadnce during the UN monitored referendum. That includes the Afar and every other ethnic group in Eritrea. Are they or most Eritreans happy with the current situation in Eritrea? No they are not. But that does not mean that they would rather be anything other than Eritrean.
Wouldn’t it be smarter for Ethiopia to stop selling its fertile lands to foreigners, control its population growth, and make wiser investment within the country instead of wishing for a port that does not belong to it?
Thanks for your reply Belew.
The rational behind the creation of the country called Eritrea is simple and if you look at the history of the people in what it now known as Eritrea you can see why. Despite what many Ethiopians believe, we are not Ethiopians. This is not meant as a matter of disrespect, but as a matter of fact.
Of course the Tigrinya ethnic group in Eritrea and the tigray ethnic group in Ethiopia have common ancestors, but that is the extent of the common links between the two countries.
As far as the Afar people, please look at my previous comment. The Afar people have made their choice. First with their guns during the war of independence, then once more during the referendum. They are as much Eritrean as every other ethnic group in the country.
So you are basically telling me that all this talk about Asab has nothing to do with the port, and everything to do with “respecting the self determination of the Afar people”?
We both know that’s BS so why not just either be honest about the issue, or not reply to my question all together?
Ethiopian SPACE Shipping Lines Training Institute is more appropriate than Maritime Shipping Lines. The trainees and the ships are going to manuever in the space, not on sea, and dock around Debre-Zeit.
It’s good that you are respecting self determination of the Afar people, I agree with you.
But what about the self determination of the Ormoia people, Ogaden people,..etc ?
chill out weyanne! SANT is coming soon to give you WE are THE WORLD food aid
But he needs a PORT where he deliver his gifts to Begger like you.
Well,well,well,…it is our favorite pigeon bloody c’moi senait from her hospital bed,in the mental institutr of paris. Nice to hear from you. That tells us you are doing good.
C’moi senait AKA. Gimattam and chigaram prostitute, your master isayas is looking for you, he needs the report on your loot when you worked for OXFAM in rwanda. Because according to the report,you stole more than 300,000 dollar worth of food aid supply before you were fired. But eritrea reecieved very few amount of it from you. What did you do with the rest? You were suposed to give atleast half of it to your country eri. Anyway its good to see you strong enough to bark on this site,considering your age 62 or 63 some where around that,not bad. Keep on vomiting your hatred. It is good therapy so far for you.
ANCHI YESHABIA AROGIT WUSHA.
Honestly speaking, Article 39 of the Ethiopian constitution is one of the best article ever exist. It should be written in Gold and worth to die for.
We need to admit that the Oromo brothers & sisters were/are the most oppressed, ridiculed & abused ethnic groups in Ethiopia. Their right for self determination has to be respected and guaranteed - PERIOD!! However, such a right can not be put on a silver plate for criminal organizations such as OLF & ONLF. To go forward, true owner must be advised and asked i.e. the poor Oromo people must/ shall decide their future! How & when?- I do not have answer for that.
Personally though, I am here asking the entire Oromo brothers and sisters for their forgiveness - Sorry, on behalf of my ancestors, for the unfair treatment!
Yes & Yes…..respect the right for self determination - that’s the only way out!
Yes, we need the port! Yes, we need to see a united country! But first, respect the people! Respect their culture! Respect their way of living! Respect their language! For God sake - Respect them as a human being - At least!
The existence of current day Eritrea is bogus & fake - Why? Because only one single ethnic group (The Hamasien elite) invented – that’s where my problem is!
Have you/we ever asked what the Kunams’ dream is? What’s the dream of the Afar people? Are they happy with the current arrangements? What’s their feeling?
You see my brother,
We need to say enough is enough for the old movers and shakers (The Amharas [me] & The Hamasiens [you])………Let us give a chance for the minorities!
Could you give us your insights about Mars and the Solar System aswell as soon as you are done with your tribalism, sexism and ethinicism theory?
As far as I am concerned, I could not get enough of your research. By the way, it does not hurt to start looking for a publisher.
Now, I will leave. I guess it is time for you to pop up!
