Ethiopia has become one of the most promising growth markets on the African continent. The government’s strict implementation of development plans is exceptional by African standards and provides an increasing level of protection for investors. The outstanding economic growth is spurring development, particularly in the infrastructure and energy sectors. It is also expected that certain government-controlled business areas will be opened for the private sector: investment opportunities in one of the largest markets of Eastern Africa and the entire continent. Among other foreign investors, international commercial banks have begun to establish a local presence.

In Addis Ababa, Rödl & Partner manages among other projects the world’s largest development fund for deep geothermal energy, on behalf of the African Union. Our local office provides support for public procurement and private sector projects in the region.
