Ethiopia Launches National Business Portal

March 7 , 2020

The Ministry of Innovation & Technology (MINT) has launched a national business portal service, a one-stop portal for e-government services, with the main aim of facilitating business activity. Launched on March 6, 2020, the portal will provide services including issuing business licenses, processing business registrations and giving information to entrepreneurs through an online one-window service. It is designed in collaboration with MasterCard Foundation, the Ministry of Trade & Industry, the Ministry of Revenues, the Ethiopian Investment Commission and the Addis Abeba City Administration. The platform, which is initiated by the government, aims to make government services more accessible online, reducing the cost of transactions and improving turnaround time for citizens. The service is part of the economic reform agenda, which aims to streamline the process of doing business in Ethiopia, according to Ahmedin Mohammed (PhD), state minister for Innovation & Technology.
