This project aims to analytically and graphically explore the regional and global economic integration of Ethiopia in the 21st century over the period 2000-2019, for more than 200 countries by applying the tool of network community analysis.

Within the framework of network analysis we use network centrality to measure and quantify the position of Ethiopia in Africa and the global trade network. The econometrics model is applied to analyze the impact of macroeconomic indicators on economic integration measured by network metrics.
