The European Business Council for Africa

NABC and the Ethiopian Embassy in Brussels invite you to the ‘Invest in Ethiopia forum’ on Wednesday, April 4th at the Malietoren in The Hague. (Bezuidenhoutseweg 12) The forum will inform and inspire the Dutch business community about investment opportunities in Ethiopia, the country with the fastest growing economy of Africa. It will focus on the opportunities in investing in the Industrial Parks and Integrated Agro-Industrial parks.

Representatives from the Industrial parks will explain the benefits of setting up a business in the park, which include tax holidays, affordable electricity, reasonable labour costs and a one-stop shop for everything the foreign companies need. Large international fashion brands like Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein nowadays have apparel factories on such industrial parks. Dutch investors and financial institutions, like the Dutch Good Growth Fund, RVO, FMO, ING and Rabobank, will be present to tackle the component of access to finance and we hear from Dutch companies, that are active in Ethiopia, themselves.

Priority sectors of this event are:

- Textile and Garments

- Agro Processing (Dairy, Poultry, Horticulture, food)

Mid/High-level companies, interesested in setting up a business in an Industrial Park are warmly welcomed. NABC’s Arne Doornebal visited the Hawassa Industrial Park in 2017 and wrote this article about it in NABC Magazine.
