Your rating: None

The first phase of the Hawassa Industrial Park, eco-friendly and the first of its kind in the continent, will be fully operational next week.

The construction of the park, Ethiopia’s flagship industrial park has been completed in a record time of nine months, and was inaugurated on July 2016.

Consistent with the Ethiopian government’s commitment to build green economy, it is designed, constructed and operated as eco-friendly, which uses the latest technology for treating and recycling about 90 percent of the water used in the park.

The park is the first Sustainable Textile and Apparel Industrial park in Africa with state-of-the-art infrastructure and facility.

Speaking on a press conference, Special Advisor to the Prime Minster Dr. Arkebe Oqubay said Ethiopia’s rapid economic growth can only be sustained through the realization of a structural transformation.

This in turn requires creating a robust and competitive industrial base.
