City Adds Plot to Africa Hall Renovation

December 7 , 2019

The government has allocated an additional plot of 3,100Sqm of land to be incorporated in the renovation of the Africa Hall together with the ongoing Beautifying Sheger Project. The agreement was signed between the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa's Executive Secretary, Vera Songwe (PhD.), and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs' Gedu Andargachew. The Addis Ababa City Administration has also inked agreements to provide the land for the project, which will serve as a public park area. The United Nations General Assembly approved the renovation project in 2015. The project would cost an estimated 57 million dollars. ECA already signed a contractual agreement with three companies including the Italian company called CONSTRUZIONI 2000 S.R.I, the UAE-based R.C. Trade Ltd, and Ethiopia Bridge Construction Plc in May, which is worth more than 28 million dollars. The renovation project on Africa Hall's main building includes a complete overhaul of the existing infrastructure, including the surrounding landscape that will also incorporate a new visitor entry building.
