Ethiopia was Africa's fastest growing economy in 2015 and has the continent's second largest population. At the foundation of the automotive potential in Ethiopia are the state-driven economy and a government that is geared towards industrialisation, making it one of the most promising African markets to enter in the industry.
AUTOEXPO AFRICA has been chosen by global manufacturers and exporters as the precise platform to enter the market of the millennium, Africa. After dominating the market in Kenya and Tanzania, the event now ventures into Ethiopia with the launch of AUTOEXPO AFRICA - ETHIOPIA, to be held at The Millennium Hall, Addis Ababa, from 24 - 26 February, 2020.
Ethiopia's automotive market is dominated by second-hand imported vehicles while the main drivers of new commercial vehicle sales are the construction, agri-business and retail sectors. This emphasises the high return on investment available for global exporters and manufacturers from the industry, with automobile spare parts being a particularly attractive market.
AUTOEXPO AFRICA - ETHIOPIA promises to be the leading trade exhibition in the region for automobile, truck and bus parts, equipments, components, accessories and tools, showcasing the latest developments in the automotive industry, with prominent industry experts, stakeholders and decision makers in attendance, making it an ideal event to source new products, network and usher in new contacts and business opportunities.
