Cementing Ethiopia's progress
Beyond the factory gates, the building boom the cement factory is helping to fuel is providing jobs for countless construction workers across Ethiopia.
With investment from the UK, the National Cement Share Company is on track to supply 14% of all the cement being made in Ethiopia. With more cement available, more building work like this new housing site in Addis Ababa can get underway and more jobs are created as a result.
