NABC has been conducting various projects and activities in Ethiopia. Dutch initiatives starting commercial companies in the agriculture sector in Ethiopia laid the foundation for further cooperation in private sector development. The last decade NABC was actively engaged with the stakeholders in the poultry, dairy and feed value chain; from the multi-annual program of the Holland Africa Poultry Partners, ToT and G2G programs to trade- and knowledge missions.
In November 2015, NABC organised – together with the Ethiopian Embassy in Brussels and the Dutch Embassy in Addis Ababa – the first Ethio-Netherlands business event. This event was to inform investment opportunities between Ethiopia and the Netherlands.
In cooperation with the Embassy of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia in the Netherlands, the ‘Invest in Ethiopia Forum’ was held in October 2018 in The Hague. The Forum sought to inform the Dutch business community about the burgeoning opportunities in Ethiopia’s Cloth and Textile & Agro-processing sectors.
