22 Feb 2022

Prime Minister, H.E. Dr. Abiy Ahmed has addressed the Parliament today. He has covered a lot of issues. Here are some of the most important ones:

#Economy:
The economic progress in the last six months should be weighed in light of the operation in the North, droughts and floods, as well as impacts of COVID. Significant macroeconomic measures are required to close the budget imbalance.

When our exports exceed our imports, our country benefits. Banks’ net value, which was ETB 1.8 trillion six months ago, has increased by ETB 2 trillion, while stakeholders’ wealth has increased as well. Over the last six months, loans to private investors have improved.

Foreign direct investment has surged by 23% in the last six months. The number of business licenses increased by 10%, with 8% of renewing already existing business licenses. Our systems, however, need to be upgraded and modernized.

#Inflation:
Food commodities, various causes Population, stockpiles, and consumer risk

We need to encourage family planning, take steps to prevent businesses from stockpiling key commodities, and boost consumer confidence while seeking to keep costs down.

#Agriculture:
Cluster farming is a productive and profitable method of mechanized farming that has to be widely adopted by our farmers.

#Industry:
Encouragement of indigenous production and reduction of imports should continue to be emphasized in the industry.

#GreatEthiopianHomecoming
It has yielded encouraging outcomes as a result of the contribution by the diaspora. We call up on Muslim diaspora to return home for Ramadan and continue their contributions.

Developing our #lakes:
From the #DineforEthiopia project, Gorgora & Koisha will be completed this year, with the exception of Wonchi. Once we complete these, others will begin.

#Corruption:
As far as we’ve come in terms of enhancing environmental ergonomics & ICT in government agencies, we still have a long way to go in terms of preventing corruption. Investigative journalism is encouraged. We are also performing evaluations.

The #Reform Process:
Reform is a process that needs time even in top government structures. In all of this, it is promising to have Ethiopians who work even during the night.

Concerning the #ReleasedPrisoners:
We must be cautious not to fall prey to the enemy’s scheme. We released the prisoners for three reasons: to bring lasting peace, taking into consideration the overall situation of the prisoners, and to consolidate our victory.

In a conflict among brothers, there is no such thing as a total triumph. When one party wins a combat while the other party is momentarily defeated, this is known as temporary victory. In turn, the defeated party would resurrect and assault.

As a result, true triumph necessitates victory in the realm of peace. This decision has greatly helped Ethiopia. We must not compromise on decisions for the lasting good of the country.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ethiopia

As such, the country’s elites have exhibited no semblance of a democratic political culture all throughout. They often resort to confrontational approaches to ensure their interests. Ethiopia has now embarked on an inclusive…
