11th Ethio – Chamber International Trade Fair with a theme “Buy Ethiopian”, was inaugurated in Addis Ababa Exhibition Center and Market Enterprise (ECMDE) on November 02/2018, in the presence of W/O Fetle-Work G/Egziabher, Minister of Trade and Industry and distinguished government Officials and Ambassadors.
The honored guest of the occasion, W/O Fetle-Work, underlined the contribution of this trade fair in promoting the recent progress of the manufacturing industry. The conducive atmosphere prevailing in the country for the notable flow of foreign direct investment to create a good opportunity for the expansion of a sustainable domestic market leads to growth of domestic products and services while inversely discouraging import of similar products. Her Excellency, the Minister, valued the active role Ethiopia is playing in attracting foreign direct investment which placed her among the top investment friendly African countries.
