Business

As a result of civil war and recurring catastrophic periods of drought, Ethiopia is one of the least developed countries in the world. The gross national income (GNI) is (2017) US $ 740 per resident; over a quarter of the population lives below the absolute poverty line. Even before the Ethiopian Revolution in 1974, the country belonged to Haile Selassie to the poorest countries in the world. The main cause was a feudal economic and social structure: emperors, nobility and church (2% of the population) controlled 75% of the agricultural area. The attempt to stabilize the economic situation after the fall of the emperor through the socialist planned economy (since 1975 nationalization of banks, insurance companies and large companies, expropriation of the large estates belonging to the nobility and the church) failed.

After the end of the military dictatorship in 1991, the new government opted for political opening and liberalization of the economy. Since 2010 the gross domestic product (GDP) growth rates averaging more than 7.5% (2014: 10.3%), but so far this has not led to any noticeable improvement in the living conditions of the rapidly growing population. Through economic and poverty reduction programs, Ethiopia secured access to the debt relief initiatives of the IMF and World Bank. Despite the haircut, foreign liabilities (2014) amount to US $ 11.8 billion. The country’s economy continues to be characterized by low government revenues and a negative trade balance. For example, Ethiopia continues to depend on international donors to finance investments and is severely restricted in its economic policy framework.

Foreign trade: Ethiopia is only slightly integrated into the world market and suffers from a structural trade deficit (import value in 2014: US $ 21.9 billion; export value: US $ 5.7 billion). The most important export product is coffee; The main imports are oil and oil products, machines, vehicles and consumer goods. The main trading partners are China, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, India and Somalia, as well as the Netherlands and Germany. Check health-beauty-guides to see Ethiopia As a Tourism Country.

Agriculture

Around 76% of the population live from agriculture, which contributes 42.3% to the gross domestic product (GDP). Smallholders predominate who produce for their own needs and mainly grow teff (a type of millet), pulses, sorghum and ensete bananas. In addition to coffee, the most important export goods include Sesame, oil seeds and, in small quantities, fruit, vegetables, sugar cane and Kath (Kathstrauch). The focus of the – often semi-nomadic – livestock farming is on cattle and sheep breeding, which not only supplies milk and meat for domestic needs but also hides for export. However, the lack of rainfall, especially in the northern parts of the country, as well as the progressive leaching, karstification and erosion of the previously fertile soils lead time and again to dramatic crop failures and a decline in the number of livestock.

Natural resources

Up to now, small amounts of gold, platinum and salt have been mined in natural resources. However, this sector began to expand in the 1990s (e.g. a gold purification factory was built in Addis Ababa) after extensive deposits of gold, titanium and iron ore were discovered.

Energy industry

In order to promote economic development, Ethiopia has started to use the existing hydropower potential. More than 99% of electricity generation already comes from hydropower plants. Ethiopia has been exporting electricity to Djibouti since 2011, and to Sudan since 2012. The largest project is the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (6,000 MW) currently under construction on the Blue Nile.

Industry

Industry (mostly concentrated in Addis Ababa) is of little importance; their share of GDP is 15.4% (including mining and construction). The most important industries are the food, textile and leather industries.

Tourism

Ethiopia has always been primarily a destination for culturally interested tourists. The “Historic Route” is one of the main attractions for tourists; it includes the important historical sites from different eras of Ethiopian history (such as the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Aksum, Lalibela and Gonder). The holy Muslim city of Harar is often included on this route. In addition, the south and southwest of the country, especially the Omo region, are visited.
