10/11/11 (AEIN) The government of Ethopia intends to build thirty-five universities, hospitals and health stations in various parts of the East African country. The Ministry of Urban Development and Construction also announced that it plans to carry out several other large infrastructure projects in the years to come, the Ethiopian News Agency reported on Monday.
The new universities will be located in the capitol Addis Ababa and the cities of Wolkite, Hossaena, Bulihora, Mettu, Assosa, Adigrat, Woldiya, Debretabor and Ambo. The government will construct new hospitals and health stations in the Gambella region, located in western Ethiopia. This will make medical and educational services much more accessible to people in many parts of Ethiopia.
The government plans to expand railroads, public housing and power plants during the next four years as well. Some infrastructure projects were finished earlier this year. The news agency reported on Monday that five newly established health centers opened to the public in Seye Woreda. About 135 new condominium units were completed in Wolkite near the start of October.
