The Huajian Industrial Town will become a dynamic, glamorous and environmentally-friendly community, a combination of both industrial and residential areas. It involves 7 sub-areas, including the comprehensive industrial area, the industrial park, apartment area, Forest Inn area, office building area, commercial area and shopping centre. When completed, the Industrial Town will become a new driver of the development of light industry in Ethiopia and Africa, generating over 2 billion dollars of revenues and 30 to 50 thousand jobs each year.
The construction of this project is in line with Chinese government’s “One Belt, One Road” strategy, as well as Huajian Group’s ambition to further expand and update its business internationally.
