With increasing commercialization of the agriculture sector in Ethiopia, there are growing demands for inputs of agricultural products by manufacturing industries and for the provision of support services.
Ethiopia has seen sizeable growth in agricultural productivity in recent years. With increasing commercialization of the sector, there are growing demands for inputs of agricultural products by manufacturing industries and for the provision of support services such as the maintenance of tractors, harvesters and other agricultural equipment such as grain silos, cold storage and transport.
The country is endowed with abundant agricultural resources characterised by diverse physical features that allow it to be divided into 18 major agro-ecological zones and 62 sub-zones each with its own physical and biological potential. Given this diversity, there are major investment opportunities in the cultivation of cash crops and horticultural products.
Processing also offers large-scale investment opportunities in Ethiopia, a country with a population of about 80 million.
There are attractive policies and incentives packages for agriculture investors.
