Ethiopian Industrial Inputs Development Enterprise

The government manages to accomplish better results in the manufacturing industry sector since the Implementation five years Growth and transformation plan (GTP). During these years various encouraging incentives scheme such as tax relief, Capacity building and loan facilitation provision have been provided for manufacturing industry.  However, for the last three years the result accomplished in the sector was below 50%.

The main reasons for this result are improper implementation of the GTP and Shortage of supply of inputs for the industries and inability to produce inputs with in the country.  These factors have made most of the industries not to manufacture sufficient products with their full capacity.

Among the various problems observed in the sector, some of them are noted below.

  • Most of the industries are obsolete and their products are also low in quality. In addition, the factories are not efficient in productivity.
  • Getting sufficient and standardized inputs with reasonable price is the main problem most industries are facing.
  • Extended and prolonged bureaucratic procedure in getting industrial inputs from abroad and export products as well a bottleneck in the sector. 
  • High transportation cost, lack of proper logistics system and inefficient financial service are the major problems in the manufacturing industry sector.  
  • The other ongoing problems observed in the sector are unable to Compete in the existing market and failure to building sustainable capacity on the sector.  

Accordingly taking these drawbacks and weaknesses of the manufacturing industry sector, it is vital and mandatory to have on outstanding firm that manages the production and import of industrial inputs.  If possible export inputs excess of local consumption is considered. Taking the existing situation into Consideration, the Ministry of Industry conducted a research in the textile and Hide and skin manufacturing industries which are the government priority area in the sector.  Thus, the research indicates that the manufacturing industrial sector including agro processing industries are facing great impediments that may endanger the sector seriously particularly shortage of industrial inputs is the main problem that should be solved.

Taking this research as an inception the government established the Ethiopian Industrial Input Development Enterprise (EIIDE) in 2015  with proclamation number 328/006/
