About us


As the successor of the informal Dutch Business Council, the Ethiopian-Netherlands Business Association (ENLBA) was established to better assist the Dutch businesses in Ethiopia as well as serve as a point of entry for new Dutch investors.

The ENLBA acts as a practical hands-on helpdesk but, and more important, it is established to facilitate the information and knowledge sharing within the Dutch Business Community. The ENLBA has strong ties with the Dutch Embassy, the Agri-Business Support Facility and the European Business Forum in Ethiopia, as well as with the various Ethiopian Sectorial Associations and the Addis Ababa Chamber of Commerce. We encourage our members to use our network.
