The number of cut flower imports from Ethiopia would be boosted fivefold, according to top executives at the Japanese Impack Corporation.
The news was made this week in Tokyo, when Ethiopia’s ambassador to Japan, Tefera Derbew, met with Impack Corporation Chairman Tomokazu Morishige and President Hekiro Morishige, respectively.
The Corporation currently imports two million rose flower stems from Ethiopian rose flower producers and exporters each year. Its representatives informed the ambassador that the Corporation intends to more than fivefold the amount of its annual rose flower imports in the next years.
They’ve also notified Ambassador Tefera about Impack Corporation’s attempts to boost Japanese demand for Ethiopian rose flowers.
