Ethiopia exports 225 million USD worth of cut flowers
Agency Public Relations Office Head Mekonen Hailu said the foreign currency secured from export of horticulture products has shown a 10.7 per cent increase compared to the performance of last year.
The export of cut flowers accounted for the majority of the revenue, with the sector generating 225 million USD of the stated amount. The export of fruits and vegetables as well as herbs generated 50 million USD.
He said 49,000 tons of roses and 714.5 million cut flowers were exported in the given period.
He attributed the increase in foreign currency earnings to consistent government support to the sector, attractive incentives and increase in export volume.
The country is becoming a preferred investment hub for horticulture export owning to conducive investment climate and government incentives, Mekonnen said.
The majority of the 130 companies investing in fields of horticulture in Ethiopia are owned by foreigners.
Europe is the key destination for Ethiopia’s horticulture products, taking 80 per cent share of the export.
North America, Middle and Far East as well as some African and other countries also receive Ethiopian horticulture products.
