Gebergziaher G. Gebremicael


The livestock sub-sector plays a significant role in the Ethiopian economy to both agricultural value-added and national GDD. In addition Ethiopian livestock and livestock product exports include finished leather, skins and hides, leather products, live animals and meat. But the sector contributes little to exports as compared to the potential and the output from the sector is underutilized. The emphasis of this study is assessing the impact of the live animal export on the leather products export. The  data  used  in  this  study  were secondary  and  are  mainly  obtained  from  secondary sources and analysed using descriptive analysis and it was fit in multiple regression models to assess the impact of live animals export on leather products export. The first thing in time series analysis is get a view of the time series plot of the variables in the analysis. We found that there is high export of live animals compared to the export of skin and hide, leather and its products. The study proved that value addition activities would improve leather products export in terms of value and volume.
