STEPI and Ethiopian Ministry of Science and Technology (MoST) hosted the workshop on the Ethiopia National Technology Roadmap (NTRM) Development in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia from August 28 to September 8, 2017.

Ethiopian government has been putting efforts to create its own national technology roadmap since 2014 and requested STEPI to support its development for 20 major industrial sectors. When MoST finalized the NTRM in 2017 with the consultations and trainings provided by STEPI, the NTRM specified the goal of each individual l sector and prior technologies to develop. To achieve the goals, a concrete implementation plan would be needed to put into practice.

The workshop was organized to support the establishment of the action plan in seven strategic sectors based on the NTRM (*7 sectors: cement, crops, environment, irrigation, leather, railway, sugar), and the remaining 13 sectors will be supported as well in 2018. During the 2 weeks local workshop, Ethiopian TF team and Korean experts were grouped by sector and focused on writing the implementation plan together.

Based on the longstanding partnership between STEPI and MoST, it was possible to bring a successful outcome from the workshop. It will help Ethiopian government achieve technological competitiveness in key industries and sustainable economic development which The Second Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP II) aims for.

Getahun Mekuria, the Minister of Science and Technology, has called on the Government of the Republic of Korea to continue supporting the successful implementation of the Ethiopian National Technology Roadmap Implementation Plan and to actively participate and cooperate with all relevant agencies involved in the project.
