Foreign Investors Eye Growing Prospect in Agro Processing

Foreign investors operating in the country have indicated the huge potential in Ethiopia’s agro processing sector, in which many investors are showing interest.

The Ethiopian Investment Commission says the sector’s untapped potential is benefiting those already in the sector and luring more others.

In an exclusive interview with ENA, GetahunNegash Public Relations Director with the commission said the sector is enjoying huge government support due to its unexploited potential.

Natural gums, spices and mineral products are also included among the list of raw materials for the sector.
