When foreign investors make their first entry into Ethiopia, it is important that they give careful consideration to the following major issues:


Is my intended business operation allowable under the current Ethiopian investment regulations? Is my business encouraged or restricted or prohibited according to Ethiopia's foreign investment laws? Are there any special licensing requirements for my intended business activities in Ethiopia?

Business Structure

What kind of investment structure should I use? Should it be a wholly foreign-owned enterprise or a joint venture or should I buy out an existing domestic enterprise?


Where should I establish my operations? Are there any particular local policies and incentives?


What are the costs for setting up? Is there a minimum capital requirement for foreign investors to operate a business?

Ethiopia's rapid economic growth has made it an attractive destination for foreign investment. Are you one of those who wish to enter this huge market and explore its potential?
