Abstract:Third World countries such as Ethiopia see industrialization as the path to development and modernization and aspire to industrialize. Based on secondary data, this paper examines the social, economic and political conditions under which industrialization was implemented in Ethiopia between 1975 and 2000. It looks at the industrial policies the regimes in power during this period - from 1975 to 1991 the Provisional Military Administrative Council (PMAC) that changed to the Peoples Democratic Republic of Ethiopia (PDRE) in 1987, the Transitional Government of Ethiopia (TGE) up to 1995 and the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia (FDRE) since then - have formulated; the level of industrialization they have accomplished; and the spatial and branch structure of the industrialization process. Emphasis is put on the period 1991-2000. Bibliogr., sum. [Journal abstract, edited]
