As part of Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s economic reforms, there has been a bold move to allow significant private involvement in a hitherto state-controlled economy.

In late August, Abiy after chairing a Macroeconomic Committee issued a number of forex regulation adjustments for a country that has long suffered a dollar crunch.

The Committee raised the interest rate yield for 27% NBE bill that requires private banks to purchase National Bank of Ethiopia (NBE) bonds from current 3% to 5%.

They also removed the current diaspora account limit of USD 50,000. Diaspora account holders can now save unlimited amount in Forex.

NBE’s purchase of 30% of the forex earnings of the private banks will be at mid rate instead of the current buying rate.

Per their decision the list of business that are eligible to accept payments in foreign currency has also been expanded to include airport, telecom services, chartered private airlines, guest houses, specialized clinics & hospitals serving foreign clients.
