Djibouti has installed a new US$90 million potash port in Ethiopia, which comes as the second of 4 new ports to be built.

"Ultimately, 35% of the volume of goods destined for Ethiopia can be unloaded here," the Chairman of Ports and Free Trade Zones, Aboubaker Hadi, explained. "It is, therefore, a major port for the entire region."

This follows the recent 2 million tpy Doraleh multipurpose port inauguration, which is capable of handling US$7 billion worth of goods a year with storage space for 100 000 t of fertilizer.
