Bete Abay Technology and Innovation Center, which will be constructed on 20,000 hectare land, is expected to cost about 390 million birr.
Bahir Dar, Capital of the regional state of Amhara, will get a new technology and innovation center, with the involvement of local and Diaspora stakeholders.
State Chief Gedu Andargachew laid a cornerstone allowing the construction of the center.
The Bete Abay Technology and Innovation Center will have a huge impact in producing capable technologists and innovators upon completion.
The regional chief stated that the Ethiopian government has given priority for science and technology and the latest project is part of that policy and strategy.
The state’s Diaspora investment association chairperson Habtamu Adugna on his part said the project will be historical as it would be inherited by the children of Diaspora.
The center would serve as a symbol of unity and solidarity as it brings together the Diaspora of the region, according to the chairperson.
“There will be an ample opportunity for the Diaspora community to show our support and solidarity for our people and the regional government. We will not sleep until we complete this grand project,” Habtamu said.
