Ethiopia is implementing phase II of its Growth and Transformation Plan that is anchored on building a solid and vibrant industrial base which paves the way to structural economic transformation and inclusive growth. The government of Ethiopia’s overarching plan is to make the country a manufacturing hub in Africa by 2025 – with a focus on light manufacturing. Ethiopia’s industrialization approach includes developing specialised industrial parks, maintaining environmental sustainability, building vertically integrated industries, and enhancing skills development – and achieving all these through strong collaboration with the private sector including global players in the value chain.

Ethiopia is developing over 10 state-of-the art industrial parks along key development corridors – each with distinct specialty in priority sectors such as textile and apparel, leather and leather products, agro-processing, and pharmaceuticals. The government of Ethiopia avails a wide-ranging incentives package for export-oriented industries in priority sectors.

Ethiopia is a preferred investment destination given its sustained economic growth with an average of about 11% annual GDP growth for the past 13 years, strategic location with proximity to major global markets, large supply of trainable workforce available at globally competitive rates, abundant supply of high quality industrial inputs, and globally competitive utility rates such as electricity.  The country further enjoys duty free market access to the US and EU through the AGOA and EBA initiatives.

Ethiopia has heavily invested on productive infrastructure including renewable energy and transport which adds to its investment competitiveness. The Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam – the largest hydroelectric dam in Africa – is being built on the Nile River and is on course to be completed over the next couple of years. A newly built Addis-Djibouti electric-driven railway has gone operational while other rail connections are under construction. Last but not least, Ethiopian Airlines - Africa’s world-class airline – leads in regional and global connectivity with close to 100 international passengers and over 35 dedicated cargo destinations.
