The Government of UK said on Thursday (February 26) that “Ethiopia is delivering impressive progress towards the Millennium Development Goals”. It added that this meant “needs of the country are changing as it experiences strong economic growth and increasing domestic revenue.”
A statement, issued by the UK Department for International Development (DfID) recognized the progress made in the country. It said that the UK stands ready to “evolve its approach by transitioning support towards economic development to help generate jobs, income and growth that will enable self-sufficiency and ultimately end poverty.” This approach would coincide with “additional funding for specific health, education and water programs – where impressive results are already being made,” the statement said. It said that the UK valued the importance of supporting Ethiopia’s efforts in the fight against poverty, adding that the “transition in approach does not affect the amount of aid DfID will provide to Ethiopia in 2015/16.”
