Indicators of economy in Ethiopia

The essential economic performance of a country is reflected by the gross domestic product, the total of all goods and services sold. Worldwide gross domestic product in 2021 was at about 12,230 USD per capita. GDP in Ethiopia, on the other hand, reached USD 925 per capita, or 111.27 billion USD for the whole country. Ethiopia is therefore currently ranked 60 of the major economies. If this is calculated per inhabitant, taking purchasing power parity into account, then Ethiopia ranks 168th in the list of the richest countries.

Inflation in Ethiopia in 2021 was around 26.84%. Within the EU, the average in the same year was 2.55 percent. In the United States, it was most recently 4.70%.

Compared with the USA, prices for daily consumer goods are around 64.7 percent lower.
The index for perceived corruption in the public sector is 39, which is below average by global standards.

Impact of the COVID-19 pandemic

Overall, the gross domestic product in Ethiopia in 2020 increased from 95.91 billion US dollars to 107.66 billion US dollars. Certainly, there have been shifts in numerous sectors of the economy, but a 12.25 percent increase has been rather unusual this year. While most countries have suffered significant losses, Ethiopia has certainly held its own. The tourism sector alone slumped by around 35 percent. The unemployment rate rose from 2.3 to 3.2 percent. The consumer inflation rate has risen from 15.8 percent previously to 20.4 percent now.
