This came on the sidelines of the Saudi-East African Forum currently held in the Ethiopian capital- Addis Ababa. Dr. Al Assaf, in a statement to the Saudi Press Agency (SPA), said that the agreement is a stable legal framework which identifies clearly tax transaction in the exercise of both Saudi and Ethiopian contracting airliners in the two countries, as its reciprocal exemption from Customs duties and income taxes derived from the activity of these institutions and also extended for employees in these institutions. Referring to the volume of trade exchange between Saudi Arabia and Ethiopia, Dr. Al -Assaf said it is growing steadily, rising from about SR 206 million in 2000 to about SR 455 million in 2007.
