Major Ethiopia textile park targets apparel brands


HAWASSA – The Prime Minister of Ethiopia, Hailemariam Desalegn, has inaugurated a major new 1.3 million square metre business park as part of the country’s latest bid to draw international apparel brands to the fast-growing textile production hub. Notably, Hawassa Industrial Park claims to be ‘eco-friendly’ and, to this end, makes use of a Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) facility, with a claimed capacity to recycle 85 per cent of sewerage disposal. The park is the flagship project of the Industrial Parks Development Corporation and will be managed by a Chinese company, offering further evidence of moves by Chinese textile industry investors to lower cost sourcing destinations.
