Ethiopia as an investment opportunity for Danish and Finnish companies
Ethiopia has an area of 1.14 million square kilometres, 513,000 sq mts of arable land and 34,000sq mts of irrigated land. Ethiopia remains an untapped and unexploited market and with this in mind the government has continued to build infrastructure to complement the path it has charted out in the Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP).
The world is already suitably impressed with the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam projects that will accelerate the country’s ability to provide adequate electricity which is a prerequisite to rapid economic growth. Addis Ababa is the only city in the region to have a metro light train to ease commuting. Still undergoing tests, the new $475 million light railway system will also enhance Addis as a cosmopolitan city and home to the African Union as well as other United Nations regional offices.
Ethiopia attracts a steady flow of investment capital and countries like; China, India, Sudan, German, Italy, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Yemen and The United States of America are among the major sources of foreign direct investments (FDI).
