Policy Dialogue on Industrial Development  -Phase 2-     Completed


This is the second phase of “Policy Dialogue on Industrial Development in Ethiopia”, conducted jointly by the GRIPS Development Forum and the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) for the period of January 2012 to October 2015. The phase II project follows the same modality as the first one, based on its successful results.

More specifically, Japan-Ethiopia industrial policy dialogue (phase II) has the following features:
1. To support the implementation of the Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP 2010/11-2014/15) and the formulation of
    the next-five year plan, focusing on industrial development.
2.
To conduct policy dialogues with the Ethiopian authorities at the three level: (i) direct dialogues with Prime Minister,
   H. E. Mr. Meles Zenawi, (ii) eight series of High Level Forum, led by Senior Economic Advisor to the Prime Minister
  and with the participation of Ministers and State Ministers of the relevant ministries; and (iii) meetings and
  discussions with policy makers and practitioners in charge

In parallel with this industrial policy dialogue, JICA is implementing the Project on Capacity Building for Dissemination of Quality and Productivity Improvement (KAIZEN) in Ethiopia.
