Abstract：Ethiopia has abundant bamboo resources, and owns more than 1.47 million ha of bamboo forest, which take up 5% of the global bamboo forest area and 40% of the African bamboo forest area. Bamboo industry is still in its infancy in Ethiopia, which still adopts the traditional way to process bamboo products, and bamboo industry is encountered with a series of problems, such as lack of bamboo stand management, low level of market development, incomplete bamboo production chain and slow development in science & technology and technical extension. Under the coordination and efforts of International Bamboo and Rattan Organization, especially after the establishment of "China-African Bamboo Center", the bamboo industry in Ethiopia is embraced with the unprecedented development opportunity. Its rich bamboo resources and low labor costs create the foundation for the labor-intensive bamboo industry, and its huge market demand for bamboo products and the beneficial investment policies implemented embody the opportunity for investment. Hence, enterprises and investors are suggested to invest in Ethiopia for bamboo industry.
