A detailed case study of industrial policy support in Ethiopia for two sectors—floriculture and leather processing—that have developed rapidly, with significant overall impact on the economy. Both sectors benefitted from a wide gamut of activist industrial policies. The common elements were first, access to finance on reasonably attractive terms through the Development Bank of Ethiopia; second, close government-business consultations; and third, flexibility in altering forms and degrees of support.
