Fiscal Balance in Ethiopia

Ethiopia Fiscal Balance | Economic News & Forecasts

Ethiopia - Fiscal Balance

Incoming data suggests that growth remained moderate in FY 2018, picking up only modestly from 2017’s outturn. Revived business sentiment, thanks to a more stable political scene, likely boosted activity, and the latest available data for Q2 FY 2018 showed solid investment growth. However, exports contracted in the same period, weighed on by softer demand and lower prices for some key goods. On a brighter note, Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed is continuing to push on with his reform drive and, in July, the government announced it would award two telecom licenses to multinational firms, opening up one of the world’s largest closed telecom markets. The move should help improve telecoms infrastructure and accessibility in the country. Meanwhile, violence broke out in the Amhara region in June, in a reported coup attempt, illustrating the fragile security situation.
