Ethiopia - Turkish firm proposes huge industrial zone in Oromia
By Kirubel Tadesse
In a move that would further strengthen the growing Turkish businesses presence in the country, a Turkish firm, Akgün Construction and Machinery, has proposed to map a huge Ethio-Turkish industrial zone in the Legetafo area of the Oromia region.
The industrial zone, planned to cover 1,460 hectares in Legetafo, will consist of industries including pharmaceutical producers, garment factories, leather processing units and packaging factories. It will also incorporate technical and vocational training centers, health institutions and hotels.
According to Akgün Construction and Machinery board chairman, Yusuf Akgün, the Ethio-Turkish industrial zone, upon successful completion, has the potential to generate one million jobs.
"The project was warmly welcomed by senior government officials including Prime Minister Meles Zenawi," Akgün said last Monday adding that Ethiopia's effort to attract foreign investors would be highly enhanced through the venture.

One more thing which Ethiopians can and should do themselves. But it seems after centuries of eluding it, colonization has become acceptable. And economy is always the backbone of any colonization scheme.

you raceisims have big problem with tigray region dont only see this region see more like sudan djibouti which is growing more than tigray you fools
this good news for ethiopan people but not for the haters.
Never forget Grang Ahmed and Turkey who trained and armed him, and who later pushed Ethiopia to the brink of extinction. 2000’s business deals are an intentional and an all out comeback by the Turks to repeat history. Read about “Bulgaria Horrors” and other 18th century history of what happened in Europe under the Ottoman occupation. The movie “300″ gives a reasonable vantage view of how the Eruopeans dealt with ancient Persians as well. Do not trust Obama either because when he went to Turkey for the much publicized visit, he was purposefuly and ostensibly softening the liberal media, who has had a love affair with him, not to be critical toward the likes of Turkey and Egypt, it is as if (Obama and Turkey) have mutual reading of the minds. In all fairness, Turkey has no business in Ethiopia whatsoever. It is one thing that the Woeyanes have an going score to settle with the Oromos and selling off their land is part of the plan, but it would come back to haunt the Woeyanes forever for Turkey would deal sharp and deadly hand in the end.
For compensation or exploitation? If it were compensation, the Turkish would have to come directly negotiate with Oromos not with TPLF, the representative of a fanatic Axumite Orthodox. A fanatic is selling Oromia, a fanatic is buying Oromia.
Why not they operate in the Adare( Harari) area? who are remnants of their Ottoman Turkish era? Do not they know how many Oromos they massacred when the Oromos refused to be islamicised? Oromia does not need barbaric Ottoman Turkish offspring as they are fifhting they are fifhting the fanatic Axumite as well.
The propoganda machine, LEBA-WEYANES as usuall bluffing their’s daily decit dose. What ever these WOOSHAS are vomiting we don’t care and We ethiopians/ oromos need our freedom before all these WEYANE nightmares and day light dreams of projects.

Good nature Oromo Ethiopians:
Pray for your land and country. Who knows what all these trumped up deals would bring upon you after all? The Al-Amoudis, the Zenawis and the unscrouplous nobody bunches who have nothing to do with your histoy are compromising your heritage.
Too bad for you and for the rest of us.
U still living in the world of history like your fathers and forefathers
Again you are confused and unable to differentiate between the real world and the ‘’Movie world'’.
The situation in Ethiopia is so different now.
