A nation in transition

Map of Ethiopia

As a landlocked country on the Horn of Africa with a population of over 110 million and more than 80 ethnic groups, Ethiopia plays a central role in the political and economic development of the region. Since 2018, the country has forged a path of political and economic reform with Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed and has made peace with Eritrea. Germany has been supporting the country since then with a reform partnership to promote private-sector development and create jobs. In return, Ethiopia has committed to implement economic reforms and principles of good governance. But it is still a challenge to shape peaceful coexistence in the multi-ethnic state. National unity is often affected by conflicts between ethnic groups and attempts at regional independence – such as the violent conflict over the Tigray region that has been underway since the end of 2020.
