Ethiopia Holds Discussions With Confederation of Danish Industry

Foreign Minister Dr. Tedros met with Sara Ballan from the Confederation of Danish Industry, Charlotte Sørensen of Arla Food Ingredients Company, and Charlotte Pedersen from GAIN, the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition, in Copenhagen on Monday (November 17). The Minister described the priority areas for investment in Ethiopia and said there were abundant investment, market, trade and tourism opportunities available. He also emphasized that the country had available land, raw materials, trained and trainable manpower and conducive legal frameworks, policies and strategies for domestic and foreign investors. Ms. Ballan appreciated the socio-economic progress that Ethiopia had made in last two decades and noted that this economic growth could pave the way for a significant market potential and raise the purchasing power of Ethiopians.

Ms Pedersen of the Global alliance for Improved Nutrition said GAIN was interested to work on children, girls and women nutrition in Ethiopia especially in the area of dairy products. She said it also aimed to work on food quality control and on community-based complementary food production. It also worked to improve access to nutritious complementary foods for all income level communities. Ms. Sørensen said that Arla Food Ingredients was interested in investing in dairy products in Ethiopia. They all noted that they could provide significant experience, technology and knowledge for Ethiopia in their areas of specialization. Dr Tedros assured them that the Ethiopian Government would provide all possible support to any Danish Companies and to members of the Confederation of Danish Industry which were interested to invest in Ethiopia.
