With a population of approximately 120 million and an annual population growth rate of about 4.50 percent, Ethiopia is the third most populous country in Africa, after Nigeria and Egypt. Land area is 1.14 million square kilometers (423,828 square miles). With a per capita income in 2002 of roughly $90, however, Ethiopia ranks among the poorest countries in the world. Despite its poverty, Ethiopia has been among the top ten markets in sub-Saharan Africa over the last several years, due primarily to airplane exports. U.S. exports to Ethiopia in 2002 were $60 million.
The agricultural sector, consisting mostly of small holdings, accounts for about 45 percent of the nation’s gross domestic product, 85 percent of total employment, and more than 80 percent of merchandise exports
