  22. Melsachew Tadesse says:

    The Ethiopian economy remains heavily dependent on agriculture, which accounts for about 50 percent of the GDP. An estimated 85% of the population gains its livelihood directly or indirectly from agricultural production. Coffee exports accounts for more than 65 percent of foreign exchange earnings, while processed and semi-processed hides and skins are the second important foreign exchange earners.
    The level of development of the manufacturing sector in Ethiopia is at its infancy; and the country’s industrial base is very low. The share of intermediate and capital goods industry is very insignificant. The industrial sector is heavily dependent on imports of semi-processed goods, raw materials, spare -parts and fuel. In addition to imported inputs, the factories depend upon backward and subsistence agriculture for their raw material demand.
    It is only fourteen years since Ethiopia began moving from a state run economy to the market economy. The country is in the process of taking various reform measures.
    The industries include food processing and beverages, automotive industries which include production of components and parts, textile and textile products and garments, leather and leather products, fertilizers (mini-Plant) and chemicals, drugs and pharmaceuticals are some among others.
    The “service” sector which consists of Trade, Transport and Communications, Banking, Insurance and Real State, Public Administration and Defense, Education, Health and Domestic and other personal services has increased
    The government has initiated a privatization program since 1995/96. Since this period of time, 85% of 909 factories have been privatized. However the number of manufacturing industries at the verge of the EPRDF led government was 283 operating only 20% of their manufacturing capacity compared with 70% currently.
    The government uses different mechanisms to guide the economy on the right track which lead it to the way of development. Among the others, helping the private sector to be the leader in the free market economy is the crucial one. The Development Bank of Ethiopia provides long, medium & short term loan with technical supports for privet sector on behalf of the government.
    My name is Melsachew Tadesse I am Ethiopian, Africa. I am living here since I was born. I am graduated BA degree in Economics with 3.09 average cumulative point from Hawassa University, Ethiopia in 2006. I am working in Development Bank of Ethiopia as a Loan Officer. I have participated in socially worthwhile project identification, feasibility study & providing financial facilities from October 2007 to date. I am interested and able to upgrade myself to Masters Degree, but I can’t afford the cost which need for the program. As a result, I am forced to look for the international programs which give free scholarship assistance. I would like to know how I can have access to Master’s degree scholarship in Economics or any other related options, with this you will help me to upgrade my contribution to my country’s economic development pace there by my Country Ethiopia.

    With best regards
