Ethiopia is the second most populated country in Africa, located in the region of the Horn of Africa. Ethiopia has one of the fastest growing economies in the world, according to the Economist. According to a new IMF review, it has also recorded an “impressive growth” during the past few years, depends mainly on agriculture. However, Ethiopia's production capacity is poor and its' economy almost depends on importation. Therefore, it offers attractive opportunities for investors. Ethiopian government reduced customs tariff significantly in the framework of creating economic liberalization. The maximum tariff came down from 230% to 35% and the minimum is 5%. The average tariff is reduced from 41.6% to 17.5%. Ethiopia has also several agreements that grant duty free access to many countries, including European countries and the USA. Business friendly climate, duty free access and competitive labour costs have successfully created new investments and employment opportunities. Ethiopia is also a member of Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) Union which has an access to 20 African countries with providing benefit of Free Trade Area (FTA).

Agriculture; Ethiopia has diversity of many ecological areas and agricultural sources but it imports all chemical fertilizers and many agricultural machinery and design equipments; such as tractor, harvester, grain silo, storage and other equipments, etc. Ethiopia grows all types of cereals, fiber crops, oil seeds, coffee, tea, cotton, flowers, fruits, and vegetables. Also, it has the largest livestock population in Africa. Significant opportunities exist for new investors in the production and processing of the agricultural crops and resources.

Food; The grown food crops are wheat, teff, maize, beans, peas, lentils, soyabeans, chickpeas etc. Even though Ethiopia produces food crops, it is not enough due to country's demand.
