Ethiopia has been renovating its approach to industrial production and export. It has been doing so for a few years, but perhaps this is the year we witness a significant improvement. According to recent reports, the mining sector (which currently accounts for only 1% of the country’s GDP) has been active in securing mined Gold, gemstones (diamonds and sapphires), and industrial minerals are important commodities for the country’s export-oriented growth strategy. Tantalum mining has also been profitable. Mining is crucial to Ethiopia’s economy as a means of deviation from the pro-agriculture industries dominating within the country. Minister of Mines & Petroleum – Takele Uma stated on his Twitter that the revenue earned by the industry is stated to have increased significantly when compared to the comparable times in the preceding fiscal years. Earning an astounding $681million. The government has also outlined a plan to increase revenue from the sector by putting in place a number of procedures. Coffee has also been a strong financial pillar throughout the fiscal year. Ethiopia’s Ministry of Agriculture said that coffee exports brought in $906 million in the Ethiopian fiscal year that ended on July 7, 2021. Ethiopia’s Minister of Agriculture, Oumer Hussein, claimed the money came from the selling of 248,000 tons of coffee to a number of nations. When compared to last year’s earnings of $854.21 million from coffee exports, the amount has increased by more than 6%. Nonetheless, compared to the previous year’s 271,000 tons, the amount of coffee shipped has decreased slightly.
