Over 74 companies from 13 countries including places from Djibouti, Italy, Sudan, India, China and Korea came to the 22nd Addis Chamber International Trade Fair that opened last Thursday at the Addis Ababa Exhibition Centre. It is one of the oldest business fairs in the country and Elias Genete, president of the chamber called it a crucial event because he says it attracts global businesses that want to invest or expand in Ethiopia.

The Djibouti Ports and Free Zones Authority, Doraleh Multipurpose Port and other companies from Djibouti were involved in the seven day event.
