Ethiopia

Summary

The Ethiopian government has used its own resources and international aid to boost economic development and lift millions out of poverty over the past two decades, through significant investment in public services. Since the early 1990s, primary school net enrolment has risen from 20% to 93%, and access to clean water from 14% to 65%. Since 2000, under 5 mortality has fallen by 60% and maternal mortality by 53%. The proportion of the population living in poverty has reduced from 44% in 2000 to 23% in 2018. In recent years Ethiopia’s economy has grown by about 8% per year. The government’s push to industrialise is creating new jobs for its people, and economic opportunities for countries such as the UK.
