Agreement Signed to Liberalize Ethiopia’s Telecom Sector : PM Abiy Ahmed

PM of Ethiopia Abiy Ahmed posted today (June 12, 2021) on his Facebook account that he has signed a formal agreement made between Government of Ethiopia and Global Partnership for Ethiopia- a company recently granted a license to operate in the country in the telecom sector.

The agreement is signed in an effort to “liberalize the telecommunication sector and open it up to both domestic and foreign investment – a major policy shift in Ethiopia!” according to his post.

The PM also mentioned that he does this to keep his promise and commitment he made when he took over the office as a Prime Minister in 2018, to liberalize Ethiopia’s telecom sector. He also called the agreement “a historic agreement with the Global Partnership for Ethiopia, which will position us to catalyze inclusive prosperity”.
