Industrial Policy Dialogue between Japan and Ethiopia

December 2011


This volume contains papers and reports prepared by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and GRIPS Development Forum for the Ethiopia-Japan industrial policy dialogue held quarterly in Addis Ababa in eight sessions from June 2009 to May 2011 (phase I). The topics were selected through mutual consultation, to fill the urgent policy needs of the Ethiopian government in preparing the new five-year development plan, i.e., the Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP) 2010/11-2014/15. This bilateral policy dialogue was launched upon a request from H. E. Mr. Meles Zenawi, Prime Minister of Ethiopia, who has tremendous interest in the experiences of East Asian industrial development. The book includes concrete case studies and best policy practices in East Asia, with international comparative perspectives.
