(BBC Focus on Africa) — Turkish electrical cable factory BMET is now fully operational after being burnt down by protesters in Ethiopia’s Oromia region last month.
The region has been hit by an unprecedented wave of anti-government protests in recent months.
The company says it suffered $6m (£4.8m) in damages, with other losses from the period of closure still being assessed.
Several foreign-owned businesses were attacked in Oromia in October, following a stampede at a religious festival in which 55 people died.
Protesters said violence by the security forces led to the stampede, an accusation denied by the government.
The Ethiopian investments Commission says it’s in talks with factories and flower farms that were affected in the unrest to help in the restarting of business.
It is considering compensation, year-long tax breaks and other incentives to help the businesses, which were mainly foreign owned.
Signs of the damage caused are still visible outside the factory:
