|Un Plan To Create 100,000 Jobs In Ethiopia by Litmus: 9:08pm On Sep 21, 2016|
Britain, the European Union and the World Bank have announced a plan to create 100,000 jobs in Ethiopia, a third of them for Eritrean refugees.
Two industrial parks will be built in the country at a cost of $500m (£385m).
Ethiopia, which proposed the plan, will be required to grant employment rights to 30,000 refugees.
UK Prime Minister Theresa May said the project would be a model for how to support poorer countries housing large numbers of migrants.
Ethiopia hosts more than 700,000 asylum seekers, mainly from South Sudan, Eritrea and Somalia.

The deal, which was announced on Wednesday at the UN summit on refugees in New York, will be funded by loans from the European investment bank and grants from the UK and the World Bank.
As part of the agreement Ethiopia will grant refugees employment rights, which many currently do not have.
A number of the new positions will be reserved for Ethiopia's growing number of young jobseekers.
