Gov.t extends deadlines for eight sugar factories’ privatization

Ministry of Finance and Ethiopian Investment Holding (EIH) has extended deadline for the privatization bid to October 5, 2023, which was originally slated for august 3, 2023.

Nonetheless, the RFP submission and site visits for the eight projects are postponed based on the ‘request of potential bidders’, according to the statement issued by MoF on July 31, 2023.

The projects include Arjo Dedessa, Kessem, Omo Kuraz 1, Omo Kuraz 2, Omo Kuraz 3, Omo Kuraz 5, Tana Beles, and Tendaho.
