At an information event on Ethiopia on 24 January 2020 in Frankfurt, experts offered first-hand specialist and market information. Under the initiative, interested companies can receive up to 40 hours of free advice.
Ethiopia wants to establish itself as a new centre of the textile and clothing industry in Africa. The country has set itself very ambitious targets for this. So far, it is mainly Asian companies that are investing in Ethiopia. Meanwhile, the first Europeans are following suit.
The information event, sponsored by the Federal Ministry of Economics, offered companies in the textile/clothing/leather sector interested in business partnerships with Ethiopia, the opportunity to network and to exchange ideas with experts from local organisations and chambers, in addition to specialist information. The programme also included lectures on law and taxation, the political and financial framework conditions, as well as sales structures and logistics.
