Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s government sees potential job creation opportunity for Ethiopia in a privatized telecom sector. Photo credit : SMborkenaMay 21, 2020Ethiopia’s communication Authority is now inviting applications from companies (apparently including expatriate ones) that are interested in taking part in the country’s telecom sector. For now, Ethiopia is ready only for two more companies that could offer service in the telecom sector, and the authority has released a document inviting a letter of interest from interested companies. Notable economists like Kebour Gena have been criticizing prime minister Abiy Ahmed’s administration move to nationalize national assets. It is unclear as to why Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s government chooses to get the privatization done in a time of Coronavirus pandemic in the country.
