"The Effect Of Trade Liberalization On Import Competing And Export Oriented Industries In Ethiopia: A CGE Assessment"
by Feleke, Solomon Tsehay, Khalid Siddig, Harald Grethe and Siegfried Bauer


Abstract
Ethiopia applied to be a member of WTO which requires gradual reduction of import duties on imported goods. this paper therefore investigates the likely impact of trade liberalization on the overall macroeconomic set as well as on welfare of different household categories. The study adopted a stage computable general equilibrium model based on the 2005 Ethiopian Social Accounting Matrix. Individual import related taxes have been aggregated and converted into an import tax. Thus the mode has been calibrated and the likely impact of trade liberalization on import competing industries of Ethiopia and its impact on different household of Ethiopia has been examined.
