The Ethiopian government established Ministry of Communication and Information Technology (MCIT) in 2010 recognizing the critical role of information and communication technology (ICT) in the national development.The ministry is an apex institution which spearheads the ICT development of the nation by way of developing policy instruments, designing various programs, mobilizing resources,guiding and monitoring implementation. Consequently, our ministry's achievement will be measured primarily by the depth and breadth of ICT assisted life it brought to Ethiopian citizens.

To this end, the MCIT will do its utmost to successfully discharge its responsibilities bestowed upon it. And I am honored to have been the pioneer minister entrusted with the mission of heading MCIT at this historic moment of Ethiopia where the government launched the Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP) that triggered the developmental journey towards Ethiopian Renaissance.In my capacity, I wish and hope to play my leading role in MCIT and I sincerely ask you all for your support and participation in our endeavor to eradicate poverty and transform the living standard of our people.
