Horticulture sector in Ethiopia:
"A 300 million USD export business within 15 years"Ethiopia has managed to transform its horticulture sector within a span of 15 years to a 300 million USD export business through attracting potential investors, Ethiopia's Horticulture and Agriculture Investment Authority underscores.
Following the introduction of modern agriculture, the sector has been growing and contributing to national export earning. Currently, the sector is contributing to the country's economy and has created jobs for over 200,000 citizens, of which 70 percent are females, as documents from the authority indicate.
In Ethiopia, about 12,797 hectares of suitable land is available for horticulture. However, only 11 percent of it is used for this purpose. Recently flowers have been produced on 1,600 hectares of land. Even so, the production compared to the nation's potential for horticulture is very small, the document further indicates.
