Governance of Industrial Policy

This study aims to provide a broad analysis of the institutional mechanisms for industrial policy making and implementation as well as the instruments of industrial policy in Ethiopia. We will examine the coherence of industrial policy and the level of state capacity available to implement industrial policy. In terms of instruments, we will try to cover a wide range of policy tools including taxes, subsidies, exchange rate regime, finance, land policy and technology policy. Given the centrality of tax policy for socioeconomic development, we will look further into how globalization might have affected Ethiopia’s ability to use taxes as an instrument for industrial development.
