Ethio-Engineering Group (EEG) and China Railway Rolling S.C. recently held discussions regarding the potential for producing electric buses in Ethiopia. The two parties reached a mutual understanding to establish an electric bus factory in the country.
In this regard, Ambassador Suleiman Dedefo, CEO of Ethio-Engineering Group, expressed his commitment to working diligently towards the production of electric buses in Ethiopia. According to the CEO, the goal is to not only offer the electric buses in the domestic market but also in the African market.
It is to be recalled that EEG signed an agreement with Yotong, a Chinese company, in March this year to manufacture city buses under Bishoftu Automotive Manufacturing Industry.
EEG is a governmental business enterprise re-established in September 2020 under the FDRE Council of Ministers’ Regulation No. 475/2020. It is engaged in manufacturing and trading automotive products, agricultural machineries, construction machineries, power and electronic equipment, metal and metal products, and plastic and polymer products.
