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 “Policy Dialogue on Industrial Development in Ethiopia” for the period of 2017 to 2022. The industrial policy dialogue (phase III) is part of JICA’s larger “Industrial Promotion Project,” which includes two additional components, .i.e., ”Investment Promotion & Industrial Park Development” and “Export Promotion through Champion Products Approach”.

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’s concrete industrial (or related) projects--which has been expanded in the GTP2 period--and monitor the progress of all cooperation projects by Japan.
