PM Abiy Inaugurates Semera Industry Park

ADDIS ABABA – Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed has inaugurated Semera Industry Park in the Afar regional state on Saturday.

Completed in 10 months, the park is expected to attract investments in textiles, apparel and leather manufacturing, among many others.

The Park, the PM said, is “a catalyst for accelerated trade along a key import/ export corridor” for Ethiopia.

The facility, which lies in 500,000 square kilometres of land, will have a significant contribution in providing jobs for the local youth and creating a market linkage for the nearby communities, according to officials of the region.
