It's due to the anticipated mining boom. The economy is tiny and was even contracting for a few years so a few millions from gold will create large booms (in numbers at least). It's not going to have much impact though unless it's used properly over several years and the government stops its anti-business mentality.
8.5% is great.^^ Yes, that's what The Economist and AfDB project for Ethiopia. The IMF (which always underestimates) says 8.5%.
