Ethiopia plans to spice up its foreign earnings

Ethiopia's agriculture and rural development ministry has said that a programme to help farmers earn more from spice exports was currently being implemented. The ministry said that the programme would help farmers invest in modern technologies as well as ensuring that they have the means to process and export spices.

The East African country has already shown strong increases in spice exports, and Ethiopia has earned $4.4 million by exporting 4.1 tonnes in 1995 E.C. (2003), and $11.3 million from 15.7 tonnes in 1997 E.C. (2005).
