Bloomberg News published an article on 10 March 2014 titled "Unilever Plans Manufacturing in Ethiopia to Emulate Vietnam" by William Davison. The London and Rotterdam-based company is renting space for a plant in the Chinese-built Eastern Industry Zone in Dukem, about 19 kilometers southeast of Addis Ababa. The ultimate goal is to establish a comprehensive consumer goods manufacturing business in Ethiopia. Unilever will begin by producing fabric cleaning soaps and then move into food.
