IMF Executive Board Approves US$240.6 Million Arrangement for the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia

The Executive Board of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) today approved a 14-month, SDR 153.755 million (about US$240.6 million) arrangement under the Exogenous Shocks Facility (ESF) to help Ethiopia cope with the effects of the global recession on its balance of payments. The arrangement (115 percent of Ethiopia’s quota) was approved under the high access component of the ESF
Comment:In 17 years the Woyane revolution managed to uproot the derge regime and in the last 18 years the woyane revolution managed to build an economy. Ethiopia today has an economy to talk about, write about and think about. Ethiopia’s economy thanks to EPRDF has arms to sway and fingures to squeeze.The growth over the past years may not have prevented the effect of global recession on the country’s ability to generate hard currency, but it has saved millions from starvation and created millions of middle income families. That is why the IMF is pouring money in to the economy! They have seen the beginning and they like what they see!

Ethiopia: Reform Stagnant, Productivity Level Very Low - WB Investment Report

Addis Abeba — Despite favorable perception by investors, Ethiopia's productivity levels remain very low when compared to almost all peer groups in Africa,..."The limited progress in raising productivity has contributed to Ethiopia's current macroeconomic challenges, in particular the poor supply response to incentives and infrastructure spending, and the growing shortfall between imports and exports," it noted.

Comment:- Supply and demand is economic 101 but what exactly is Ethiopia’s economy demanding that is causing high demand in hard currency? Are experts expecting Ethiopia to satisfy the supply side of the equation from internal home grown industry or is Ethiopia as non oil producing country somehow expected to raise hard currency from agricultural products to cover its expense for oil and other capital goods? In the latter case we think it is trying and on target but it takes time! Sugar cane requires time to mature!
