Selected Speeches Of His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I



CHAPTER IX

ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT


For the first time in Ethiopia’s long history the country has had a National Development Plan. His Imperial Majesty introduced in 1957 the first Five-Year Plan, the beginning of a twenty-year socio-economic plan. He has pressed forward a broad-based programme of infrastruc­ture with the expressed purpose of laying the foundation for Ethiopia’s all-round, national economic development. The results are today evident in many areas of the nation’s viable and expanding economy, and the second Five-Year Plan is now being implemented.
