Red tape cutting in Ethiopia

According to Addis Fortune, an online paper, the Ethiopian government is seeking to reduce the number of licenses and speed up official response times in an effort to improve the business environment. The method to achieve this seems orthodox: the ministry of trade signs "cooperation agreements" with "professional competence certificate issuing government offices" to enlist their support in achieving the red tape reduction objectives. This method seems to fall short, however, of true liberalisation that would really stimulate private initiative.
