Smelling of Roses

Ethiopia is now Africa’s second largest flower exporter after Kenya, with its export earnings growing by 500 per cent over the past year.

This has left Kenya stunned, given that five years ago, the Horn of Africa country was doing less than $20 million of exports compared with the East African giant’s $300 million.

...It is now estimated that Ethiopian flower exports could generate an about $300 million in just another two-three years.
