The Ethiopian Horticulture Producer Exporters Association (EHPEA) has announced the opening of a technical and vocational training institute for the horticultural sector, the first of its kind in the country. The focus will be on the competitiveness of the Ethiopian horticultural industry and access to international markets. The institute aims to address the shortage of skilled labour in the sector and to play a role in technology transfer, and plans to offer 3 to 6 month training courses in conjunction with the private sector to provide internships and apprenticeships. More than 2,000 people are expected to be trained by 2022. (Source: De l’autre côté de l’Afrique: La veille agricole, 25 January).
