• Road

    Ethiopia has one of the lowest road densities in Africa. As of 2010, Ethiopia had 49,000 kilometers of all-weather roads, of which only 15% were asphalt. Currently, the GOE is vigorously engaged in road construction and expanding the existing road network through implementing a series of what it called Ethiopia's Road Sector Development Programs (RSDP). The World Bank and donor agencies are participating heavily in 'these programs. In 2011, the GOE embarked upon RSDP Phase IV, the largest and biggest program undertaken in the sector. RSDP-IV is considered a strategic pillar of government's Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP), which plans to increase the road network from 49,000 kilometers (33,000 miles) to 136,000 kilometers (91,000 miles) in five years.

These include food processing factories, beverage industries, textile factories, chemical industries, hotels, etc.
