SESSION 3: THE ETHIOPIAN TEXTILE AND GARMENT SECTOR
An abundance of raw materials, low wages and low energy costs give the Ethiopian textile and garment sector a comparative advantage over other countries and regions. This includes processes from the spinning, weaving and finishing of textile fabrics to the manufacturing of knitted and crocheted fabrics, carpets and sportswear.
The Government initiated several reforms aimed at improving the policy environment, from cotton production to garment exports. In this session, government officials and private sector representatives discussed opportunities and challenges within the sector.
