The European Union (EU) has provided a € 15 million support to improve the competitiveness of Ethiopia’s coffee sector.
State Minister of Agriculture, Sani Redi, said EU’s funding would contribute a lot in improving coffee productivity through addressing the challenges facing the sector.
It would also help to export value added coffee from 28 coffee growing woredas (districts).
