Promotion of micro and small scale enterprises sector and improvement of Addis Ababa city transportation system

2011 KSP with Ethiopia was initiated in November 2010 when the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development (MOFED) of the Government of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia (GOE) submitted a written Demand Survey Form. The form was officially channeled through the Embassy of the Republic of Korea in the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia and the Ministry of Strategy and Finance (MOSF). The requested topics were: (1) Capacity Building on Economic Policy and Economic Crisis Management; (2) Improving of Addis Ababa City Transportation Facilities; and (3) Transforming of Micro and Small Scale Industries into Exportable Industries.

Based on the topics submitted by the partner country, the MOSF and the Korea Development Institute (KDI) reviewed the form to judge if the topic would be suitable within the scope of Korea’s necessary expertise and experiences for sharing with Ethiopia, and decided to carry out the topic under the KSP (the “project”). MOSF and KDI pre-screened out transforming selected micro and small scale industries into exportable industries and improving Addis Ababa City transportation system project ideas to be addressed in the 2011 KSP. Korea Expert Consulting Group (KECG) was selected and requested to undertake the project in view of its expertise and consulting capacity.
