Being one of the fastest growing economies in the world, Ethiopia is the oldest independent country in Africa, and is among the most stable counties in Africa. Ethiopia’s economy has achieved robust, broad-based growth averaging 10.3% a year from 2006/07 to 2016/17, compared to a regional average of 5.4%. Boldly speaking, where there is encouraging economic growth, there is a room for investment to come.

The commitment of Ethiopia’s government reforms in terms of privatization is so encouraging. The government's growth strategy calls for structural reforms designed to strengthen the private sector, boost competition, and increase investment—an approach that is accelerating the end of Ethiopia’s long reliance on state-led economic development. The ratification of a new investment law is also expected to add momentum to Ethiopia’s reform efforts.
