Investment Policy Review - Ethiopia

image of Investment Policy Review - Ethiopia

With the signing of the peace agreement between Ethiopia and Eritrea in December 2000, effectively ending the two-year conflict between the neighboring countries, there is a renewed hope that Ethiopia will regain the economic growth momentum that it experienced in the post 1992 liberalization period. Key ingredients for renewed growth are increased investment, both domestic and foreign, in supply capacity, including physical infrastructure, the generation of relevant skills and the development of competitive enterprises through local technological and innovative capability building.




The UNCTAD secretariat carries out two types of national policy reviews namely, the Investment Policy Review (IPR) and Science, Technology, and Innovation Policy (STIP) Review. These reviews, carried out at the request of Governments, are intended to assist interested member States in formulating national investment and technology policies through an in-depth country level analysis and by sharing experiences with other developing countries. At the request of the Government of Ethiopia, this review combines elements of both IPR and STIP in an integrated manner to assess how the country could develop its technological and innovative capabilities with a view to enhancing supply capacity and attracting foreign direct investment (FDI).
