Ethiopia is one of the African countries with great economic potential - especially for the textile industry. Strengthened by democratic governments and a generation of young, motivated people, the country is a future market and location for European companies.

In 2018, 141 manufacturers were active in Ethiopia's industrial areas, 81 of them in the textile and clothing sector and six leather goods manufacturers. In 2020, there were already 200 apparel and textile manufacturers operating in Ethiopia.

However, the basis for further development is a qualified workforce with sound training at skilled worker level.
