Messages of the Manager of Addis Ababa investment Agency
Addis Ababa is a capital City and a Character city that has the status of both a city and a state. It is where the African Union and its predecessor the OAU are based. It is also a seat for Economic Commission for Africa and several diplomatic communities and international NGOs also headquartered in it. Addis Ababa is therefore often referred to as “the political capital of Africa”, due to its historical, diplomatic and political significance for the continent.
The pioneering African Air line, Ethiopia Air line is headquartered on the grounds of Bole International Airport in Addis Ababa. From its hub in Bole International airport the airline serves a network of more than 60 international destinations and more than 16 domestic ones. The carrier files to more destinations in Africa than any other airline. It is one the fasts growing airlines in the industry. The airline’s cargo division has been awarded The African Cargo Airline of the Year in early 2011. All these adds to the investment opportunities of the City of Addis.
Addis Ababa also has highway lines that take to the Djibouti port and to all other regional states. This is another opportunity that one looks into when preparing an investment plan.
