Ministry Supports Trade Relations in Tigray Regional State

Apr 8 , 2023

Trade activities are expected to resume in Tigray Regional State following the announcement of the Ministry of Trade & Regional Integration of its plan to speed the process. Officials in the Ministry pledged to assist with supervision and capacity building following a visit to the regional state and discussion on the trade structure established by the interim regional administration last week. Manufacturers and industries have resurged in the region after the federal government and leaders in the regional state signed an accord in Pretoria, South Africa, and a subsequent declaration in Nairobi, Kenya, ending a brutal two-year war. The resumption of ties between the Ministry and the regional state further sparks a flicker of hope for the residents who have been deprived of basic consumer goods due to the supply disruption and the economy impacted by the civil war. The peace accord was further actualised by the establishment of an interim regional administration headed by Getachew Reda. Getachew formed a cabinet with 27 members composed of members from TPLF and opposition parties the same week. The officials plan to work on the supply of basic consumer goods, application of fuel subsidies, starting online registration of trade licenses, and identifying trade-related areas that need assistance.
