Four Ago-Processing Parks to Go Operational

February 9 , 2019

Four integrated agro-processing industrial parks will be completed and inaugurated before the end of this fiscal year. The industrial parks are under construction at a cost of 10 million dollars. The four projects are earmarked for specific purposes. The park at Baeker is for sesame seeds, sorghum and livestock; Bulbula is for cereal and milk; Bure is for cereals, pulses and spices; and Yirgalem is for coffee, fruit and vegetables. The study and redesign of the parks took two and a half years, according to Ayalneh Abawa, a project advisor. The provision of electric power remains a challenge as each of the parks consumes 40MW to 50MW, and there is a shortage of foreign currency to construct substations.
