Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed has announced plans to create three million jobs.
He announced the plan at the presentation of the 2019-2020 budget to parliament, who approved the spending plan.
A big chunk of the money for next year will be used on finishing roads and power plants.
The hope is that the spending will boost the country’s economic growth which is already among the fastest growing across Africa.
The government plans to raise 75% of the total expenditure of $13.4 billion from taxes.
