Ethiopia: East Africa's New Economic Power

Deutsche Welle posted on 26 June 2017 an article titled "Ethiopia: East Africa's New Economic Power" by Martina Schwikowski.

The author comments that Ethiopia's economy is booming with an average economic growth rate per year in the past decade of 10.8 percent and is expected to overtake Kenya soon to become East Africa's largest economy. The question is how sustainable this boom is in a country that has been under a state of emergency since October 2016 following protests against government policies and human rights abuses.
