Creating Markets in Ethiopia: Country Private Sector Diagnostic

May 19, 2019

Sustaining Progress Towards Industrialization

This Country Private Sector Diagnostic (CPSD) examines and identifies opportunities for growth of the private sector in Ethiopia.  It suggests a broadening strategy beyond manufacturing to create jobs and opportunities in a range of traditional and non-traditional sectors, such as tourism and ICT to meet the jobs challenge, while achieving macroeconomic stability.

The report further notes that particular opportunities arise from leveraging the digital economy, especially if combined with an opening of the finance sector, which could greatly increase access to financial services for a large segment of the population.
