GDP in Ethiopia
Ethiopia - GDPThe Ethiopian economy likely recorded its most sluggish period of growth in more than a decade in FY 2015. The country is expected to have failed to match the double-digit growth sought by the government in that fiscal year due to both the devastating drought that affected the harvest in most parts of the country and the ongoing social unrest. Lately, protesters have attacked foreign- and government-owned businesses, causing millions of dollars of damage. Moreover, on 30 November, the main opposition figure and representative of the Oromo ethnic group was arrested in Addis Ababa, after giving a speech at the EU parliament where he criticized the government crackdown.
