Electric Machinery and Power Generation
Last published date:

Electric machinery imports are growing.  The mining sector, the medical sector, and road construction industry all have high demand for such machinery.

Local companies usually contract assistance from foreign companies through government tenders.  American suppliers of used equipment can directly sell their products to civil engineering companies.

Opportunities exist both for construction contracts and for provision of heavy equipment.  Large infrastructure projects now on the drawing board include solar and biomass power plants, electric transmission lines, road construction and irrigation projects in Bagre and Samendeni—areas the government has designated as “growth centers”.
