Take the approach described in the manual page for <import>.

The location of the main build file is ${ant.file} - otherwise your
project must have a name.

${ant.file} is the "this" of the main build file, for any
imported/included file we need a different "this" and given the
immutability of properties we need different names for them - this is
only possible if we have something meaningful (ant.file.SOME_GUID
wouldn't help anybody) and thus need the build file writer's help via
<project>'s name attribute.
