Council designs project on agriculture marketing


The Addis Ababa Chamber of Commerce said it has designed and is putting into action a three year agriculture marketing project to support making agriculture products more market centered.
Ethiopia has finished a Five Year Sustainable Land Handling Project, that targets the nation’s farmers and should modernize and expand the agriculture sector, successfully and heading for the second round.
However, says a Senior Adviser to the Agribusiness Facility Project with the Addis Ababa Chamber of Commerce Dr. Zerihun Desalegn ,work has not been  done up to the expectations. The Chamber is striving to help the farming business, he said.
He said the chamber has been offered 70 million Birr from the government of Netherlands to focus on profitable agriculture activities.
The Three-Year Agribusiness Project is expected to create job opportunities for micro and small enterprises, graduating students and experts in the field.
In addition, Dr. Zerihun said activities are underway to modernize information networks in farming.
