Abstract:Since 1992, the Ethiopian government has been liberalizing and reorienting the country's economy through moderate market reforms and the shifting of its role from one of active participation in the productive and service sectors to one of creating an enabling environment for the private sector and providing regulatory oversight. This article assesses Ethiopia's trade and exchange rate relationship, during the period 1990-2002, in the context of the country's economic performance under the liberalized economic policies of the government. It also examines the related issue of the value of the country's currency to determine, through the Purchasing-Power Parity Hypothesis method, whether the country's currency (the Ethiopian Birr) is undervalued or overvalued.
