The Government of Ethiopia drew up a long-term industrial strategy in 1994 known as Agricultural Development-Led Industrialization (ADLI). The Government is convinced that agriculture is the engine that can propel the socio-economic development of Ethiopia by providing the basis for industrialization and necessary surplus for the expansion of other sectors of the economy. The ADLI strategy gives priority to the development of agriculture as a primary stimulus for the sustainable growth of agro-industry and is expected to raise productivity in both agriculture and agro-industry through appropriate linkages between the two sectors, management, technology, human resources and various incentive mechanisms.
