National Initiative Launched to improve
Ethiopia’s Investment Climate
Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed launched a national initiative to improve Ethiopia’s investment climate. The Initiative is an integral part of Ethiopia’s Action Plan for Jobs. It will make Ethiopia a competitive place to start and grow businesses.
Ethiopia needs job creating growth. Successful businesses and entrepreneurs drive jobs growth.
The government has an essential role in identifying and addressing constraints that prevent the private sector from growing and generating jobs.
The National Initiative identifies over 80 distinct actions to be delivered across 10 government agencies. With clear direction from the PM, the reform measures will be monitored by the Policy and Performance Unit of the PMO and coordinated by the Ethiopian Investment Commission.
