Over the past decade, Ethiopia has experienced high rates of economic growth which has led to poverty reduction. The annual GDP growth is 10% with the agriculture sector contributing 45% and employing 73% of the population. The Government of Ethiopia (GoE) has consistently devoted a significant portion of its budget to pro-poor programs and investments and one of these investments is the 2nd Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP II) which focuses on shifting agriculture from food security and productivity to commercialization of the sector and increasing the role of private sector.
