Ethiopia’s GDP has thus grown more than tenfold between 2000 (US$ 8 billion) and 2018 and would grow more than twelvefold by 2020. (World Bank) As a result, Ethiopia became one of the world’s fastest-growing economies and an impressive investment destination in Africa.

 

According to the Ethiopian government, Ethiopia, until 2025, shall become the manufacturing hub of Africa, and its population shall achieve middle-income status. All this shall be reached within the framework of a carbon-neutral economy.

Based on these upbeat market developments, Agrofood Ethiopia 2020 is to continue its success story.
