The Dire Dawa Industrial Park Project, which was constructed by CCECC, was inaugurated by Prime Minister of Ethiopia Dr. Abiy Ahmed Ali and other dignitaries on Oct. 29.
The first phase of the Dire Dawa Industrial Park project covers an area of 150 hectares and is divided into a duty-free zone, a living zone, and a commercial zone. There are 15 modern factory buildings, one-stop service buildings, dormitories, shopping malls, and other well-equipped supporting facilities in the industrial park.
Ethiopia’s Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed Ali said in his speech that Dire Dawa is home to a wide range of raw materials as well as young manpower. The project “offers youth in the community the opportunity to grasp new skills and knowledge as well as demonstrate their productivity.”
He pointed out that it is a major small town with lots of trees and green spaces for the asphalt of the courtyard, with adequate apartments for residential use. “I’m also quite pleased to have seen the residential houses, pedestrian walkways, and green legacy trees planted, all within a short period of time.”
He also praised the industrial park for designing and building a kindergarten for the children of corporate workers here, helping reassure them so they could continue to work steadfastly in the industrial park.
During the ceremony, CCECC received the certificate of recognition from the Industrial Parks Development Corporation of Ethiopia (IPDC).
