He divulged that 295 billion Birr of the aggregated capital, has flowed from 6,255 foreign investment projects.

According to him, employment opportunities have been generated for over 130,000 citizens, from the projects which have entered the production phase and added that, as all the projects go fully functional, over two million other jobs will be created.
