About Ethiopia

In the Eastern Africa region and especially in Ethiopia, a variety of investment potentials have developed over the last few years. There is a clear need for products and solutions in the mining and raw materials sector in order to achieve economic and social benefits. The Ethiopian government is hoping for foreign direct investment, higher foreign exchange income and the development of a processing sector. Of increasing importance are also opportunities in the area of supply for the numerous new infrastructure construction measures for the development of new extraction sites for mineral resources on site. Good business opportunities continue to arise in the area of cooperation in training and further education in this sector, where international know-how is in great demand.
