Hotelier Indonesia - Agriculture is the foundation of Ethiopia's economy and accounts for about 50% of the GDP, 84% of exports and 80% of total employment. This has contributed in making the food processing sector not only the largest manufacturing industry in the country but also one that offers top opportunities for investment.

FOODAGRO AFRICA - Africa's largest International Food, Hotel & Agriculture exhibition, aims to tap this huge investment potential with the launch of FOODAGRO ETHIOPIA, to be held at The Millennium Hall, Addis Ababa, from 12 - 14 May, 2017.

Ethiopia is one of the most populous countries in Africa and with a population of about 90 million, offers a huge market for processed food products. It is also the leading producer in Africa of many agricultural products. The current import trend and growing consumer interest also implies opportunities for investment in food products that have a potential role for import substitution and improvement of the trade balance.

Our Company has never been to Africa. We are slightly worried about safety and total organization of the event?
East Africa is as safe as any other region in the world. Though we would say that Africans are the friendliest people in the world, it is always necessary to take precautions no matter where you are.

You just need to take care of your expensive and personal belongings such as laptops, mobiles and watches etc. by not leaving them unattended. As far as organization is concerned, Expogroup has an experience of 19 years in Africa. Our facilities, equipment and services are unmatched in the region though they cannot be compared yet to exhibitions held in Germany and other developed countries.
