Dr Allan Pamba, GlaxoSmithKline’s Vice-President, Pharmaceuticals, East Africa and Government Affairs, Africa, said on Thursday February 12, 2015 that GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) considered Ethiopia as one of the strategic countries in Africa for its growth and investment plans.

He disclosed that GSK had completed its investment plans to set up a pharmaceuticals factory in Ethiopia.  GSK will partner with Addis Ababa University in the areas of pharmaceuticals, manufacturing and healthcare delivery.

Meeting with State Minister for Foreign Affairs, Dr Yinager Dessie, and Dr Pamba said that Ethiopia’s economic momentum had encouraged GSK to set up a pharmaceuticals factory in the country. Dr Pamba emphasized that GSK was keen to position Ethiopia as a pharmaceutical supply hub for East Africa.
