Après l’Asie, direction l’Afrique. Le numéro deux mondial du prêt-à-porter, Hennes et Mauritz (H&M), a indiqué vendredi 16 août qu’il allait étendre son réseau de fournisseurs à l’Ethiopie, après avoir concentré 80 % de sa production sur le continent asiatique. Des commandes-tests ont été passées auprès de fournisseurs éthiopiens, qui doivent bâtir des usines dans le pays d’ici à la fin de l’année. Dans un communiqué, le géant suédois reconnait ne pas encore savoir combien de ces fournisseurs seront retenus et quand ces usines seront prêtes.

The best dormitory in town bears the evocative name of Hotel Harmony and houses several hundred migrant workers recruited almost exclusively by Xawax, one of the country's 1,300 or so recruitment agencies. The Express People agency, on the other hand, puts its workers up in a third-rate bed and breakfast, the Veselka, a stone's throw from the railway station.
