Policy Dialogue on Industrial Development  -Phase 3- 


The Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and the GRIPS Development Forum have been continuously conducting the third phase of gPolicy Dialogue on Industrial Development in Ethiopiah for the period of 2017 to 2022. The industrial policy dialogue (phase III) is part of JICAfs larger gIndustrial Promotion Project,h which includes two additional components, .i.e., hInvestment Promotion & Industrial Park Developmenth and gExport Promotion through Champion Products Approachh.

More specifically, Japan-Ethiopia industrial policy dialogue (phase III) aims to contribute to the effective implementation of the Second Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP2: 2015/16-2019/20) and the formulation of next five-year development plan (esp. industrial objectives), by sharing Asian perspectives and providing the policy learning process with the Ethiopian authorities. Special emphasis is given to Quality, Productivity & Competitiveness (QPC)-related issues, where Japanese industrial cooperation has a comparative advantage.

Similar to the phase I & II, we conduct bi-annual policy dialogues with the Ethiopian authorities through the three channels: (i) dialogue with Prime Minister; (ii) High Level Forum at minister & state minister level; and (iii) individual discussions with ministers/state ministers & policymakers, as well as various stakeholders (e.g., private sector, researchers, donors). In addition, the phase III includes new activities such as joint policy research (with the Ethiopian researchers/research institutes) and handholding pilots (comprehensive support to a small number of high-potential companies for domestic private sector transformation).

We are combining policy discussions with Japanfs concrete industrial (or related) projects--which has been expanded in the GTP2 period--and monitor the progress of all cooperation projects by Japan.
