Ethiopia is the fastest growing economy in Africa and the 4th in the world (according to IMF 2018 report), besides being one of the few real investment destinations in Africa. The country had an average of 10.3% GDP growth from 2004 – 2015 (World Bank).
There are tangible indicators that reveal the future development of Ethiopia is becoming brighter.
Forecast of real GDP growth stands at 8.5% in 2018 (IMF 2018); According to forecasts by the British
Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), the country will score real GDP growth between 7.8 and 10.0 percent for 2019 to 2023. This is a success, since on average only half of this figure is likely to be achieved in sub-Saharan Africa, and Ethiopia is the undisputed leader in East Africa anyway. The service sector is developing at least as well as industry, benefiting from the demand of a population of over 100 million, which has been almost completely undersupplied, and from prospering tourism.
The capital city, Addis Ababa, is the third diplomatic city in the world being a seat for United Nations
Economic Commission of Africa (UNECA) with its 20+ agencies, African Union, Pan African Chamber
Commerce and Industries (PACCI), 120+ diplomatic missions, various inter-governmental organizations and many other international companies’ regional offices.
