Background

This vacancy is posted on behalf of Federal Democratic REpublic of Ethiopia Ministry of Industry and the contract and the whole selection process will be done in the Ministry.

With more than 13 years of average double-digit economic growth behind it Ethiopia is now in the third year of the second Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP II, 2015-2020). In the first GTP period significant growth has been achieved in the manufacturing sector registering 21.7% growth as compared to 10.6% in the previous plan period. The manufacturing industry also registered 15.8% growth during GTP I as compared to 11.6% in the previous plan period. Regarding sectors contribution in GDP Industry sector contributed 1.5.2% during GTP I while its contribution in the previous plan period was 10.3%. That of manufacturing industry contribution was low at 4.8% showing not much improvement from the previous period contribution of 3.9%.

This growth rates are expected to be maintained in the second GTP as well with a planned growth rate of 20% for the sector and 21.9% for manufacturing. In the overall economy (GDP) industry sector is expected to contribute 22.3% by end of GTP II. The manufacturing industry’s contribution is set at 8% for end of GTP II while GTP III target (2025) is set at 18%. This indicates the country’s plan to continue with the growth momentums as well as introduce transformation in economic structure that is currently dominated by agriculture and service sectors. In addition to focus on diversifying the economy, it also planned to diversify as well as deepen the priority sub-sectors in the manufacturing industry. To this end 6 programs have been indentified and targets are set for each priority industry.

Ethiopia has managed have among the lowest levels of emissions in the world as a consequence of using hydro and other renewable sources of energy for electricity generation. Public sector investment into infrastructure has been a major driver of demand-side growth during GTP I as evidenced by the country having one of the highest public investments to GDP ratios in the world.

Accelerated industrial development with improved growth of the manufacturing sub-sector is a key part of the strategy for transforming the economy into Middle Income status by 2025. An integral part of this strategy is to ensure both balanced regional industrial development and integration of Ethiopian industries into regional and global markets. This will require capacity building of regional areas and of Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), many of whom are located in regional areas. Capacity building requires investment, both public and private including domestic and foreign sources. This requires a critical review of the GTP targets on industry/manufacturing including the challenges faced and the required policy interventions.

Ethiopia’s population and employment is widely distributed over 11 regions agriculture accounting for over 80 percent of the employment. SME’s account for over 50 percent of employment though the number of formal SMEs is relatively low and the income per capita relatively low. SMEs play only a minor role in the Ethiopian economy but the potential to improve that contribution is significant. Skill deficiencies, small scale, lack of experience, weak technology transfer and coordination failures may be contributing to under-performance of SME through poor productivity and lack of competitiveness. Among the solutions for improving regional and SME performance are industry clusters and other coordinating network structures. Ethiopia is ranked very poorly on the state of cluster development. 

Accelerated Regional Growth and Enterprise Transformation

GTP II seeks to consolidate the positive development outcomes attained over GTPl to bring about broad-based and transformative structural changes required to continue the rapid growth path toward becoming a middle income country by 2025. This development goal is especially anchored on stimulating rapid growth and structural transformation in regional areas.

GTP II emphasizes the need to create conditions that will enable the industrial sector to play a key role in the regional economies and promote the establishment, diversification and growth of export-oriented and strategic import-substituting industries: textiles & garments, leather and shoes, agro-industries, chemical products and construction materials, pharmaceuticals, metals & engineering and emerging industries such as electrical and electronics, information and communication technology and equipment, iron and steel, petro-chemical  and wood/furniture. Development of SMEs along value chains of priority sectors and their diversification including aquaculture for regional areas is one of the key areas of industrialization for the GTP II period. Regional areas offer the real potential of accelerating structural change in these sectors and creation of increased employment with higher levels of productivity and resource value addition. Interventions are envisaged at three levels: i) the development of small and medium enterprises (for which a comprehensive Small Enterprises development strategy has been developed and the responsible federal executive agency reorganized and strengthened during GTP II; ii) the strengthening of Medium and Large Scale manufacturing enterprises and industries to bring about accelerated growth through development of industrial parks including SME clusters and Agro-parks and iii) structural transformation in the economy through improved productivity and quality. GTP II aims to achieve the interventions through the balanced participation of the public and private sectors with the market economy playing an important guide to investment confidence and direction of resource allocations.

Furthermore, under GTP II it’s anticipated the structural transformation of enterprise sizes will be accelerated, especially the movement of SMEs into medium and larger scale domestic enterprises. This is expected to expand production capacity of the country’s industrial base and increase foreign exchange earnings through increased investment and emergence of new enterprises for export and strategic import substitution. This is in line with the Country’s Agricultural Development -Led Industrialization strategy. GTPll, whilst continuing to consider agriculture as the main source of growth and job creation, envisages the manufacturing sector will play the lead role in economic growth.

To support the Government of Ethiopia's strong commitment to realize these transformative goals indicated in GTP II, UNDP is providing its support to contribute to the diversification of industrialization and organizational capacity development efforts that would enable accelerated industrial growth.
