Industrial Park and Agrigulture Transformation – Ethiopia

Ethiopia has been on a rapid drive to transform its economy into one of the continents largest industrial hubs this is an all-encompassing project targeting links in agriculture infrastructure and textiles to develop a base for development and poverty eradication with Africa's second largest population in some of the highest growth rates in the world regularly exceeding 10% annually Ethiopia has implemented growth and transformation plans gt1 and gt2 in conjunction with vision 2025 are earmarked to transform agriculture and spearhead industrial growth as the lead component in making the country a middle-income economy this shift is presenting an opportunity for Ethiopia and her investors to capitalize on a focus on light and medium manufacturing sectors with the introduction of specialized industrial park zones the industrial parks we would like to build would help us to shorten set-up time it will also help create the environment for the manufacturing plants to have a good level of productivity so the our prime focus first the key industries we have increased them in terms of number and focus and the cities we have chosen also are selected in view of what they can offer for the specific nursery additional industrial park zones are currently being developed in miquellee grade our convulsion Adama and newly inaugurated hwacha industrial park which is already attracting globally renowned textile to chooses ranging from 500 to 2,000 hectares with the emphasis on accelerating growth and promoting more FDI in Ethiopia these all-encompassing zones are currently under expansion and offer investors an integrated environment for production with new facilities focused on agro-processing to pharmaceuticals we came here in December 2013 the shed was offered to us and we started construction we completed the construction of factory in three and a half months and after the two months we started exports from here the need for a technically skilled and qualified workforce is an asset recognized as integral to Ethiopia's industrial growth technical and vocational training are now a bedrock of higher education in the country with more expansion plan for the country's youthful and growing population we have been building technical schools for the last 10 years based on the German education system so we have reform at our technical colleges and universities so technical schools we do have now 1,300 technical schools who can train up to 1 million investors already present in Ethiopia recognize the potential offered by these measures and the population and are already making plans to expand their operations in the country we are setting up an industrial park in mojo with an investment of around 150 roughly million dollars we are planning to produce the comfort shoes there around 30,000 choose a day so that is the our future what we are planning in this country in terms of planning for new investors to industrial zones a clear strategy on one-stop-shop of incentives are now in place in the cell park development by itself is an incentive because in the past when companies want to engage in manufacturing industry they have to find the land build the factory and infrastructure in addition to that there will be a one-stop shop services inside-the-park companies that are getting inside the park will be focusing on their operation allowing investors to concentrate on their core business in designated zones has the added benefit of increasing time spent on production and export orientation in our company our scene textile solutions ETP garment the PLC in the Delphia we export a lot you know our completed government to USA market with the beauty free for example anova according to our agreement between our government and the USA government and also we have a lot of European buyers so in order to export you know in our Carlmont you know in Europe market so our company is enjoying a lot that kind of persistent for those considering investment in Ethiopia the agricultural sector represents major opportunities for returns that will build capacity and in turn facilitate growth in the national economy the shift is being made from a subsistence agriculture model to ultimately the driver of the economy the fundamental transformation of this sector is the catalyst to reinvigorate the structural base of the country this is an agrarian economy one of the programs we have or the vision 2030 five years first we will not continue focusing on transformation of agriculture agriculture is absolutely important for us and we have given it top priority for the last two decades who would like to continue giving special attention to agriculture opportunities in Ethiopia for experienced Agri investors are vast capacity building is now encouraged in a diverse range of investment projects in the sector including wheat processing beef feedlot for the domestic and export markets UHT milk processing opportunities tomato concentrate processing for domestic and export markets and soya bean processing for animal feed and consumer markets with an emphasis on enhancing productivity for high-value crops and livestock and increasing the capacity of existing agricultural institutions the end goal is to forge a more secure and self sustainable agriculture sector this is also complemented by Ethiopia's competitive logistic footprint which is able to ready facilitate export with new regional roads and rail routes the country is also one of the leading aviation cargo hubs on the continent this efficient turnaround has already reaped dividends as demonstrated by the dynamic Ethiopian flora cultural sector in addition to this opportunities also exists for packaged fruits and vegetables for export to speciality supermarkets in Europe in the Middle East tropical juice processing for domestic and export markets along with beef and poultry these individual opportunities represent a demand for integrated processing plants that have the potential for export and also supply a rapidly growing Ethiopian market land lease was yeah I was very attractive access to the market in general was was easy for us to get a kettle and to get the yeah feed ingredients for for our feet was yeah easy to get done here in Ethiopia tax holiday was attractive duty-free import of machinery which was really helpful to get established see I think those those things really helped us to to choose Ethiopia yeah I think there's a lot of room left for expansion Ethiopia beef wise is quite an untouched place we're not that big yet we at this point have five thousand six hundred animals on site but are already the largest largest feedlot in Ethiopia and Ethiopia is a huge population of cattle sixty million animals in Ethiopia so yeah I believe there's just a lot of room to expand the expanding growing livestock capacity also brings its own demand for an increased supply of quality animal feed moving from low to high productivity we choose Ethiopia six seven years ago because if the OPR the theoretical potential is huge they're around 100 million people and the agricultural sector is still very much under developed even if you compare it with other African countries and we saw that one key missing in the chain was a high quality feed I mean we can we can stimulate farmers to two whole chicken but if not all the right inputs are there okay what can they do so we decided to drive the the sector by investing in animal feed and by debt farmers can grow their chicken production through our feet that was one of the basics which was missing at that moment the moment our production capacity is around 35,000 tonnes a year this year we reach we will reach 30,000 tonnes so we are almost reaching full capacity that's why also now we started planning how to reach 70,000 tonnes of s T because we plan let's say to to grow every year around 20-25 percent with the second largest population on the continent and rising income potential Ethiopia is poised to increase production and demand for Agri projects this equates to enormous potential for Agri producers who now embark on this journey

  1. Amerikkka needs to take note of the emerging economies. Bringing new infrastructure. US can't even do something basic like this with its crumbling infrastructure. Can't even develop developing nations. All its doing is swimming in never ending debt and continuous wars around the globe!

  2. If you believe this you'll believe anything. The country is flat broke. It's been putting out fake economic statistics for years.

  6. I can't wait to be participant in Ethiopia's growth. No matter what the enemies of progress say, we will keep on moving forward. I love my people, and thank you China for believing in us, and being partners. No country can succeed on its own. Chine become powerful with the investment from the USA and Ethiopia will become economic power house with China's investment. Soooooo happy!!!

  7. Africa is doing what China did 30 years ago, opening up and inviting foreign investment(capital and technology), and why is China investing alone, because the west said no to this invitation. In the near future, you will see a lot of Shanghai, Guangzhou,or shenzhen in Africa.

  8. Unlike Nigeria or South Africa which sit on a lot of raw material such as gold, diamond an oil but lack ambition or is hindered by corruption, Ethiopia and Somalia have the potential to do a rapid growth and join the developed and lead Africa into a new era, only if they could have peace and unity though.

  9. I will make predictions that Ethiopia's infrastructures will be better than the US in 20 years.Costs of living,education and healthcare will be cheaper too.This is gonna happen if american politicians are still controlled by big money.
