Several projects announced recently: a juice factory, an agro-processing company (pasta and the like), 50 Turkish textile companies, a Nissan assembly plant (the Ethiopian importer will open it), etc. Slowly but surely, we're getting there.

we are certainly on our way. But with the muslim protests and tough talk from Egypt/arab world it isnt for sure that we will make it there before something terrible happens. Lets just pray it doesn disrupt us.

Turkish industrial zone planned in Ethiopia
Posted by Rahel Samuel on Sep 5th, 2013 // No Comment



Turkey is preparing to create a Turkish industrial zone in Ethiopia’s capital, Addis Ababa, as part of its African policy which started in 2005 and has been showing marked development of its business assets.
Speaking at the opening of the African Strategies Sectoral Evaluation Meeting in Ankara on Monday, Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu said that the Ethiopian prime minister had proposed the assignment of some land to establish a Turkish industrial zone in Addis Ababa, and that Turkey hopes to implement this plan.
“They [the Ethiopians] know that we don’t go to Ethiopia with a passing fancy and calculations of temporary profits. We also know that they don’t only offer a business opportunity but that they opened their hearts,” Davutoğlu said, stressing that between Turkey and Ethiopia there are not only economic relations but there are also thriving social relations as well.
Commenting on the new diplomatic steps, Davutoğlu stated that Turkey has come a long way in the last ten years. Davutoğlu explained that a Turkish firm invested $50 million in Ethiopia in 2005 while there are now 341 Turkish companies with a total investment of $3 billion in the country.
The Turkish foreign minister also mentioned the results of the Turkish government’s public diplomacy in Africa. “The amount of Turkish aid to the African continent, particularly to Somalia, has reached $750 million. If we hadn’t spent billions dollars of in public diplomacy and activity, we wouldn’t have the positive image and perception that we got from our humanitarian aid in Somalia,” Davutoğlu said, reiterating that Turkey is reaping the rewards of its humanitarian foreign policy.
Saying that Turkish companies can take advantage of numerous opportunities in fields such as construction and trade, the foreign minister also drew attention to important attempts in the business sector by the African Union, which ranks as one of the most active international organizations in the world.
In the African continent, there are 30 offices of the Turkish Cooperation and Development Agency (TİKA) and 25 trade offices of the Undersecretariat for Foreign Trade, aiming to strengthen economic and bilateral relations between the two countries. The number of Turkish ambassadors in Africa has risen to 34 from 12 in 2005.
Turkey has a Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with four African countries, as well as agreements to prevent double taxation and support mutual investments, and Turkey has also established a business council with 17 African countries. Turkish Airlines (THY) has flights to 35 African destinations to improve links between Turkey and African countries as part of the African policy.

Hello guys Industry zone being established in Dre Dawa ,, similar plans are also being developed for Baher Dar Awassa and Woldiya and Addis already has I think three industry zones ,,, with most power plants in near completion ,,we will definitely see an influx of foreign manufacturers coming to Ethiopia,,, industry is definitely going to take off probably during the next five year plan.

Ethiopian MoI Concluded Agreement with Chinese Association of Industry Zones

The Ethiopian Ministry of Industry has signed agreement with the Chinese Association of Industry Zones for construction of an industry zone in Dire Dawa town.

According to the agreemnet, the association will draft master plan for the industry zone and carry out study on the construction of the zone.

The Ethiopian government, inspired by South Korean industy parks, is setting up industry zones equiped with the necessary infrastructur as well as prebuilt standard factories to be made immediately available to investors through effiecient and integrated administration and other services.

Currently, the government is developing several industry zones in different parts of the country.

Another industrial zone gets a boost


Eshet invests $200 mln in Kombolcha industrial zone

By Fitsum Abera
Tuesday, 11 March 2014 05:21

An Israeli company, Eshet Engineering Ltd, and the Ministry of Industry (MoI) formed a company through a joint venture to set up an industrial zone in the town of Kombolcha, Amhara National Regional state. Eshet invested USD 200 million in these JV.

The Kombolcha Industrial Zone will be constructed on 1,000 hectares and will be used to host prioritized export-oriented sectors, such as textile and garment, leather and leather products, agro-based industries, among others. The government has prepared about 1,123 hectares for industry zone development in Kombolcha. According to the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) the two parties signed, MoI will own 5 percent of all the rights of the industry zone while Eshet will own the rest.

[...]

In a related development Israeli business delegation is the latest to join the constant stream of business to business meetings, with representatives from 16 Israeli companies coming to meet their Ethiopian counterparts on March 5 and 6. The delegation, which was led by the Israeli Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Yair Shamir, consisted largely of companies working in aquaculture, irrigation and agro-industry.

[..]

According to Tefera, currently there are 50 Israeli companies working in Ethiopia and there are more than 150 others in the pipeline already registered that haven’t started work yet. Shamir said that most Israeli business people prefer to open Ethiopian companies while using Israeli technology. “Ethiopia is a huge country that is an island of stability and democracy,” Shamir said. “Around you very few are up to this standard. For us as a country to be able to give guarantee to companies that want to invest in this kind of land that is managed so well by the government is impressive.”

Shamir said that Israel will give assistance to Ethiopia if matters of instability arise. The companies that want to invest in Ethiopia are not only in the agriculture sector but also IT, medicine and technology.
