Why should your company go to Ethiopia?

Ethiopia has a strong development agenda, and it is by far the largest recipient of IFO funding (International Financial Organizations like the WB Group, the African Development Bank, EU institutions, the UN system, bilateral agencies, etc.) on the African Continent.

Engaging in IFO-funded projects offer a lucrative business opportunities in focus sectors for Finnish companies as proposals that do not include 100% financing options are usually at a competitive disadvantage.
