Grand Ethiopia Renaissance Dam help Sudan save $20 million annually

Ethiopia Dam on Nile
The Grand Ethiopia Renaissance Dam which is being built on the Blue Nile River will enable neighboring Sudan to save millions of dollars a year in clearing sedimentation, according to Ethiopian scholars and researchers.
In a high-level symposium held on Friday June 29/ 2013 at Addis Ababa University, researchers said the dam will highly reduce the quantity of silt that accumulates in Sudan, enabling Khartoum to save annually up to $20 million. Ethiopia could earn up to 2 million Euros a day by selling electricity to neighboring countries.
