A validation workshop took place on national standard for Horticulture products

The government’s voucher duty incentive scheme helps domestic products competitiveness in the international market.

A validation workshop which took place recently addressed a long-standing challenge: the lack of a national standard for input-output coefficients for Horticulture products.

Representatives from the Ministry of Industry, Ministry of Agriculture, Ethiopian Horticulture Producer Exporters Association, and horticulture farms participated to validate the draft directive.

The workshop discussed:

The legal framework for the scheme

Issuing beneficiary certificates

Draft input-output coefficients

Farm representatives shared their concerns about implementing the new directive.

The Ministry of Industry committed to consider those comments forwarded by the participants and to finalize the directive by the end of June 2024.

This is a positive step towards a more efficient and transparent voucher duty scheme!
