Discussion Context

Ethiopia is a country on the move. Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed has captured international attention with his efforts to broker regional peace, open the country’s closed political space, and liberalise the statist economy. Abiy’s reforms present huge opportunities for private sector investment in one of Africa’s largest and fastest growing economies. Yet, behind the reform agenda, Ethiopia’s political system, social fabric and operating environment remain complex. Recent waves of unrest exposed some of the risks underpinning Abiy's reform agenda, while the liberalisation process will present a number of challenges and uncertainties for investors to navigate.
