"Ethiopia is an attractive country for investors"

She continues: “Besides, we want to emphasise that Ethiopia is an attractive country for investors. There are various interesting projects, and the government supports those financially as well. Interest rates are low, so there are plenty of reasons to ask for some information. An area of 1,000 hectares has been set apart for investors.”
Yemishrach says Ethiopian companies export much to Europe. “Important buyers are Germany and the Netherlands. The UK is also a major buyer. We are planning to export even more in the future, and the government supports us in that. The great thing is that we produce year-round, and so we always have supply. Europeans are mostly interested in snap peas and fine beans."
