Ethio Weetex + Ethio Big 5 will take place in Addis Ababa from November 24 - 26, 2021 for the 3th time, after a successful premier in 2018. The emphasis of Ethio Weetex (including Gas & Oil) + Ethio Big 5 (including Mining Industry) will be on water, energy, renewable (solar, lab, wind) energy, electricity, electrical fittings, lighting and luminaries, wires and cables, oil and gas, building envelope and special construction, construction tools and building materials, MEP services and offsite and modular construction.

The rapid development of the economy and the intense population growth dramatically increases the need for the country’s water resources, energy and especially electricity and modern technologies. Ethiopia employs different methods of electricity production, there are Power plants, Thermal power plants, Renewable energy and Hybrid (solar panels work during the day and turbines are driven by biofuels at night). The total capacity of the country’s electricity are 4.4 MW. Solar energy is under vigorous development, after all its Africa and the Sun is plenty over there. Ethiopia is a leader in hydropower in Africa and the country has built many hydro power plants.

The Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (Dam Millennium) of about 6 Mw of capacity is currently under construction, it is one and a half times bigger than the currently available capacity. But even now, not only does Ethiopia supply electricity for itself, but also sells it for export. Since there is a significant amount of rainfall in Ethiopia, the rivers are full and there is sufficient water for irrigation thus irrigation systems are developing. For hydro-geographic network of Ethiopia the presence of lakes in the Great Rift zone is common.

There is currently intensive industrial and civil construction in progress with the use of modern technologies. The good investment incentives are provided, including a package of measures to support investors, from obtaining a permit before granting soft government loans of up to 70 % of the project cost, duty-free imports of machinery and equipment for the production set up. For citizens of many countries, Ethiopia has granted visa-free access or visa on arrival. The share of import is increasing, and in the last ten years, went from $4 billion in 2005 and reached more then 19 billion USD in 2015.

Ethio Weetex + Ethio Big 5 are being organized under the patronage of the Addis Ababa Chamber of Commerce, the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia Ministry of Trade, Ministry of Water, Irrigation & Electricity and Ministry of Construction.
