So I wanted to compare its Act or any other regulating document with that of Nepal Airlines Corporation Act. Could you please link me up with the Act that regulates Ethipian Airlines? I have googled it a lot but just can’t seem to get my hands on the Act. It would be great if you helped. I can be reached at

  50. how we will implement federalism on developing nations men?


  51. Are we rely on the way of true federalism?


    • shimelis adane

      federalism badly deserves the realization of two basic foundations of governance;autonomy and decentralization. it is something simulation if federalism is coined as it is in the absence of neither. on the other hand achieving autonomy and decentralization requires to go through a range of operations. to bring autonomy of governance, we have to develop a constitution which properly share power of the state between the two tiers of government and the federal units particularly shall have a capacity(financial, managerial as well institutional) to exercise their power. decentralization in effect demands decentralization of state power and decentralization party plat form. in the country where the party exercise centralized decision making federalism remain a mere echo whether the constitution divides power or not. it is rightly indifference. in Ethiopian neither are in place. the country is characterized by a party that has a monopoly of decision making and regions are serving as a mere instrumental schemes of matters that are gotten a final resolution at party plate form. even the constitution is accorded trifle powers for federal units.

  68. Christin

    Hi, maybe someone could help me with these questions:

    Do you have any national legislation regarding to the ban of plastic bags in Ethiopia? Are there any requirments for energy consumption, energy efficiency and eco-labelling related to IT-Hardware? Any laws and/or drafts for these topics?

    Thank you in advance for your help!


    • Ethiopian law prohibits putting on the market any plastic bag that is not
      labeled to how whether it is biodegradable or not (Article 8 of Solid Waste
      Management Proclamation No.513 /2007)
      No Official requirements for energy consumption, energy efficiency and Eco-labeling related to IT-Hardware.

      However, there are some related laws and policy documents stated in General terms which to some extent are relevant.


      Article 23 Telecommunication Services Council of Ministers Regulations No. 47/1999
      ICT infrastructure Manual for Leather Industry (AMHARIC)
      Final Draft Strategy for the Implementation of National Quality Infrastructure (NQI) in Ethiopia
      National Science, Technology and Innovation Policy
      Information Exchange Standard: Final Document
      By Standardization and Regulatory Project

      The previous Quality and Standards Authority (QSA) had formulated an Ethiopian Standard for for Information technology.

      Unfortunately, The agency is split into Four and the project is now being undertaken by one of the newly established agency.

      for more info:,%20Standards%20Authority%20Splits%20in%20Four.htm

      This site also contains useful information, but most of the links are broken:

      The Capacity building directorate of the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology
      Provide the following types of technical support services when needed necessary for government organizations that will not be treated or handled by e-government service.
      Prepare technical specifications for Hardware & Software.
      Evaluation of technical proposals.
      Hardware & Software Inspection.
      End user support/fixing technical problems.
      Evaluation of Term of Reference (TOR)

      In most of the bid documents prepared by specific administrative agencies, energy consumption, energy efficiency and Eco-labeling are

      usually included as a criteria.

      The Ethiopian Ministry of Communications and Information Technology is considering a new bill to certify the competence of exporters, importers, wholesalers and retailers in the IT and electronic sector in Ethiopia

      You can also get more information about the issue from:

      ICT-ET a Non-Governmental organization established to :to EXPOSE, ENGAGE and ENABLE the private sector within the ICT industry in Ethiopia.”
      The Ethiopian Cleaner Production Center (ECPC)
