The Industrial Parks Development Corporation (IPDC) stated it had planned to generate 127.1 million dollars from exports over the six months. The highest revenues were generated from the export of textiles. Hawassa, Bole Lemi and Adama industrial parks take the biggest share among the 13 industrial parks operating in the country. The Corporation also stated three companies that had ceased operations in Combolcha Industrial Park have recommenced their work. Industrial parks employ over 33,000 people.
