Are you looking to supply to the Garment or the Leather Sector? The Industrial Park Development Corporation (IPDC) is offering matching grants for manufacturers of the following products: fabrics, labels, threads, string, tape, elastic, buttons, polybags, embroidery, cutting paper, plastic hangers and carton packaging.
The Competitiveness and Job Creation (CJC) Project is financed by the Government of Ethiopia (GoE) and World Bank. The main objective is to link local supplier firms to eleven large Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) companies operating in Bole Lemi Industrial Park (BLIP). Two of the companies produce leather products (footwear, gloves) while the other nine are garment manufacturers. Eligible firms will receive matching grants to enhance their capacities, productivity and market access in order to meet international standards and demand. 5 successful linkages are awaiting first round final approval and we are now calling for applications for round two.
In order to be eligible your firm must be privately owned and employ a maximum of 500 people.
