    የ2007 የዘጠኝ ወር አፈጻጸም እንደሚያሳየውም የወርቅ ወጪ ንግድ ገቢ በ19 በመቶ ወርዷል፡፡ ዕድገት እየታየበት የነበረው የቅባት እህሎች የወጪ ንግድ ገቢ ሳይቀር ከቀደመው ዓመት ዘጠኝ ወር አኳያ በ20 በመቶ ቀንሷል፡፡ የአበባ ምርትም በዕድገትና ትራንስፎርሜሽን ዕቅዱ ከተቀመጠው ማሳካት የቻለው 47 በመቶ ብቻ ነው፡፡

የኢትዮጵያ የወጪ ንግድ በሚፈለገው ደረጃ ለመራመድ ያልቻለ የኢኮኖሚ ዘርፍ ሆኗል፡፡ የተከታታይ ዓመታት አህዛዊ መረጃዎች በግልጽ እንደሚያሳዩትም የአገሪቱ የወጪ ንግድ ዘርፍ ከአዙሪት ያለመውጣቱን ነው፡፡

የአዘጋጁ ጥያቄ፡

    ወርቅ ለኢትዮጵያ ክፍተኛው የውጭ ምንዛሬ ማግኛ ምንጭ ሆኖ ቆይቷል። እስካሁን ክፍተኛው ገቢ ከወርቅ የተገኘው $602.4 ሚልዮን በ2011/12 ነበር፡፡ ከዚያ በፊት ግን በ2010/11 የተገኘው $48´61.7 ሚልዮን ነበር። በ2012/13 የገቢው መጠን ወደ $584.4 ሚልዮን ወርዷል –ካለፈው ጋር ሲነጻጸር – የኢትዮጵያ ብሔራዊ ባንክ እንደዘገበው። የገቢው መለዋወጥ ከተላከው መጠን መቀያየር ወይንም ከዓለም የወርቅ ገበያ ጋር የተያያዘ ሊሆን ይችላል።

Ethiopia seeks EITI membership – if it were up to it – without free media and independent civil society groups

10 Mar

By Keffyalew Gebremedhin – The Ethiopia Observatory

The Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) is a novel mechanism, which is extremely beneficial to poor developing countries, if they so choose to make good use of their natural resources (oil, gas and minerals), with a view to improving the lives of their peoples. What the EITI does is ensure that what governments say they have put to the market and have in return received in payments are consistent with payments international companies report they have paid.

Hyenas to get huge bite: Ethiopia’s declining revenues from mines force death of value addition

6 Aug
    Editor’s Note:

    These days, Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn and his colleagues have so many things to panic about. Last week, as always, it was the nation’s overall revenue nosediving. In that context, we also talked about the falling revenues from coffee and coffee again, after which we moved to gold.

    Did we forget sesame? Yes, on purpose. At least, it is doing reasonably good service with the Chinese through the soft loan Ethiopia has been receiving for coverage of infrastructures osts – the so-called Angola model. Therefore, it is uniquely suited for resourceless Ethiopia for now.

    However, when it comes to our mineral resources especially the decision to export them uncut and unpolished/unprocessed, the wrongheadedness we suffer now as well as tomorrow creeps up. Because of this, we are sentencing society to a permanent state of servitude.

    This automatically exposes emptiness of sloganing about poverty reduction and the move to middle-income country, a decade from now, which the government has been propagating for nearly five years now. Fortunately, until recently we have been hearing of less of it; it gets usually revived only when the TPLF regime is in trouble, as we saw last week and some days before that and now.

    In the circumstances, given the bad picture in terms of the export revenues and the reserve itself, the prime minister last month ordered all offices to revise their revenue targets and provide him with better data.

    That they did. For instance, the ministry of mines has raised its revenue target by nearly a third; it was not bad, but they cannot get away with it.

    The question is what would they do differently? Yes, they have told us that they would take the most regressive action – they lift the ban on export of rough gemstones and raw tantalum – “to fill the gap between its [the nation’s] initial and revised plans.”

    Good for them! The state may feel its belly today, certainly at the expense of the nation’s tomorrow.

    This is a decision Ethiopians would regret, unless the wisest amongst those that are involved in the business think of the future and get it reversed by tomorrow – August 7 – with common sense prevailing!

The Ministry of Mines (MoM) is backtracking on its plan to ban rough gem exports during the 2013/14 fiscal year. It is also lifting the May 2012 export ban on raw tantalum, in order to increase the export volume of mineral resources.
