Ethiopia Commodities Exchange

Organisation Acronym: 

The Ethiopia Commodity Exchange (ECX), which was created in April 2008, is a new initiative for Ethiopia and, according to the website, the first of its kind in Africa. The vision of ECX is to revolutionize Ethiopia’s tradition-bound agriculture through creating a new marketplace that serves all market actors, from farmers to traders to processors to exporters to consumers.  Commodities represented on the exchange include coffee, maize, sesame, haricot beans, and wheat.  There are a number of briefs and articles, which might be relevant, including studies from Uganda and Kenya.  Go to:  There is no licensing information available for these PowerPoint presentations and other documentation.  But perhaps most relevant will be market data (historical and current) for coffee and grain.  Click on market data at the top of the page.
