Why invest inEthiopia

Every investment destination brings with it both opportunities and challenges. Ethiopia is no different. Yet, Ethiopia presents uniquely untapped opportunities to both local and overseas investors. There is clear legal framework that the government of Ethiopia has instituted to leverage and guide investments.


Why Ethiopia

Investment Commission

The Ethiopian Investment Commission (www.investethiopia.gov.et),

a national government structure, is dedicated to creating a more conducive investment landscape that would provide effective and efficient services to investors. The Ethiopian Growth and Transformation Plan, which aims to escort Ethiopia to a Middle-Income status by 2025 has multi-sector foreign direct investment as its key priority. Most importantly, the Ethiopian government is committed to ensuring the Ease of Business Doing that would provide investment incentives, efficient investment due diligence, better operational freedom, and flexible policy structures.

Networking in investment takes time, and when done correctly can yield great results for years to come. We are committed to provide the service we promise at CINE, which will speak for us.

The nation is experiencing peace and lasting stability. Half of the world population lives in a ‘radius’ of 8 hours flight from Ethiopia, making the country highly accessible logistically  to 3.8 Billion people in all direction.

The establishment of Centre for Investment Networking in Ethiopia not only as reliable investment bridge for investors to walk on but also as reliable partner that walks along investors will add value to investors in Ethiopia.
