The project is located in Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, where the African Union headquarters is located. The construction contents include administrative office, emergency response centre, information centre, biological laboratory and expert apartment, cleanrooms etc.

After the decision was made in April, in order to make sure the project could be finished on time, CESE2 made full preparation including the installation materials such as sandwich panel, insulated panel, aluminium ceiling, aluminium frame door, heap filter for laminar flow hood etc. Meanwhile, they were also making the cleanroom designs.

The project is the first large-scale aid project undertaken by CESE2 in Africa, which highlights the mission and responsibility of the large central enterprise, opens up a new direction of the company's overseas business, and is of great significance to the further implementation of the company's overseas strategy.
