France granted Ethiopia 70 million dollars in concessional loan for the relocation and expansion of one of its largest abattoirs, Addis Ababa Abattoirs Enterprise, and 0.5 million dollars as a grant for technical support.

The agreement was signed by Finance and Economic Cooperation State Minister Admasu Nebebe and France's Ambassador to Ethiopia Frederic Bontems.

“The credit and grant agreement which we signed is part of our commitment to strengthen our partnership especially in building a modern city infrastructure and service to the residents”, the State Minister said.

The Ethiopian authorities plan to implement the project between 2017 and 2022 and wants to double the capacity of the facility to 810,000 slaughtered animals per year, which would represent 60% of the meat consumed in Addis Ababa Municipality.
