Ethiopia Economic Outlook

  • The strong growth of Ethiopia’s economy in 2014/15, estimated at 10.2%, is expected to continue in 2016 and 2017, while public investment is expected to ease infrastructure bottlenecks and bolster economic structural transformation.
  • Ethiopia faced severe drought in 2015 requiring emergency food and aid in 2016 and causing inflationary pressure, while the risk of public-debt distress increased due to rising non-concessional borrowing and export underperformance in 2014/15.
  • The urban population, growing at 3.8% per annum, is expected to reach 42.3 million by 2037, which could pose significant development challenges if not addressed.
