Description

This report investigates the Ethiopian infrastructure industry, which is changing rapidly and is developing into a major player in the economy. There are many small firms in the industry, several mid-sized players but no massive local construction corporations. However, the country has developed excellent trade and aid relations with China so many Chinese firms have taken on big projects in the country. The industry is growing rapidly, due to Ethiopia's significant GDP growth in the last five years on the back of the government's Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP) as well as increased foreign investment.
