The Canadian Council on Africa (CCAfrica) is pleased to invite you to join a historic Business Mission to Ethiopia February 22-25, 2015. This Business Mission coincides with the celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Diplomatic Relations between Canada and Ethiopia and represents a collaborative effort between Ethiopian Embassy (Ottawa, Canada) and Canadian Embassy (Addis Ababa, Ethiopia).

Ethiopia represents one of the fastest growing economies in the world and the pace of development, across diverse sectors of their economy, continues unabated. The Governments of Canada and Ethiopia have determined the most mutually beneficial way to celebrate 50 years of Diplomatic Relations is to undertake this Trade Mission with the specific goal of increasing trade relations between our countries.

Sectors to be featured in the February 2015 Trade Mission includes:

  • Energy / Power: Generation & Transmission of Electricity from hydro, geothermal, solar, wind and waste sources of energy
  • Agriculture: Commercial Farming, Agri-Technology & Supply, Livestock (including beef & dairy farming)

Ethiopia, with a population of more than 90 million, has demonstrated uninterrupted, double digit (non-oil) GDP growth for the past 11 years. According the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTD) World Investment Report 2014, Ethiopia is classified as one of the major FDI destinations in Africa. Canadian companies searching for new emerging market opportunities should consider Ethiopia as a preferred destination.
