Ethiopia mulls 1 bln USD revenue from mining exports – Xinhua |

ADDIS ABABA, Aug. 13 (Xinhua) — Ethiopia plans to earn 1 billion U.S. dollars in revenue of mining exports during the Ethiopian Fiscal Year 2019/20, which started on July 8, an Ethiopian official said on Tuesday.

Speaking to Xinhua, Market Development Linkage and Forecast Directorate at Ethiopia Ministry of Mines and Petroleum (MoMP) Betru Haile said the mass sensitization campaign which will include all relevant stakeholders aims to combat contraband mining activities that have partly blamed for Ethiopia achieving low mining revenues in 2018/19.

Ethiopia has already established several gold trading centers as it seeks to boost its income from the mining sector and at the same time reduce contraband mining trade.

Ethiopia earned 49 million U.S. dollars in mining exports in 2018/19, the lowest mining revenue for the East African country in years.

“We expect mining firms engaged in mining exploration to enter into production in 2019/20, as well as the resumption of mining activities by those firms that have stopped mineral production due to the country’s foreign currency shortage and unrest in some traditional mining areas,” said Betru.

Gaps in legal frameworks and lack of integration among stakeholders are also a major challenge that are often said to have a negative impact on Ethiopia’s mining sector performance.

Ethiopia grants first financial services licence to foreign firm

Ethiopia grants first financial services licence to foreign firm

By Maggie Fick

NAIROBI, Aug 8 (Reuters) – Ethiopia’s central bank granted a financial services licence to a foreign-owned company for the first time on Thursday, as the government begins to open up the economy of Africa’s second most populous nation.

Ethio Lease’s new licence signals Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed is moving ahead with the economic reforms he pledged when he took office last year.

The company will lease equipment such as MRI scanners, tractors and drilling rigs to companies that can’t import such equipment themselves due to foreign exchange shortages.

This will create jobs and increase productivity, Ethio Lease said in a statement. The company is owned by New York-based equipment leasing firm Africa Asset Finance Company (AAFC).

“There is a liquidity shortage and a lot of businesses are craving equipment that they just can’t get,” said Frans Van Schaik, chairman and CEO of AAFC.

“Almost every factory in Ethiopia will be able to tell you about how an equipment shortage or some other issue is delaying their construction or operations.”

The company plans to import $600 million of equipment initially.

Abiy wants the private sector to help provide jobs for millions of unemployed youth in the nation’s 100 million people.

Ethio Lease will fill a significant unmet demand for equipment, National Bank of Ethiopia governor Yinager Dessie told Reuters in a phone interview.

Yinager said that the central bank would like to license more foreign companies to lease equipment.

“This will ultimately create more jobs, more employment and more economic growth,” he said.

Yinager said the government was taking tangible measures to support the private sector, noting that last year the central bank allocated more foreign exchange to the private sector than the public sector for the first time.

“We will continue this,” he said.

The governor declined to specify current foreign reserves but said it was stronger than when Abiy took office 18 months ago.

Ethiopia wants to open up its economy, said Van Schaik, but problems remain.

“The bureaucracy in Ethiopia is overwhelming,” he said. “If you want to succeed in Ethiopia, you need to be patient and persistent.”

The foreign exchange shortages have worsened in the past five years as the government spent heavily on infrastructure before export earnings from new sectors such as manufacturing took off.

Ethiopia intercepts trafficking of over 880 nationals

ADDIS ABABA, Aug. 5 (Xinhua) — Authorities in Ethiopia’s Amhara regional state, located in the northern part of Ethiopia, on Monday said that they have intercepted some 882 individuals as the country works to curb human trafficking.

In a press statement, Amhara region Employment and Social Affairs Office, said 882 individuals were intercepted during the last Ethiopian Fiscal Year 2018/19, which ended on July 7, reported state media outlet Ethiopia News Agency.

The statement further said authorities have separately arrested and brought before court 32 Ethiopians suspected of masterminding human trafficking activities.

Out of the 882 Ethiopians intercepted during the 2018/19 fiscal year, 440 were women with the rest being men.

Despite a growing economy and public awareness campaigns on the dangers of human trafficking by the Ethiopian government, it is estimated that thousands of Ethiopians are trafficked to foreign countries every year.

The Ethiopian migrants are trafficked through three main routes to reach their final destinations in the Arabian Peninsula, the European mainland or South Africa.
