Ethiopia's Construction Professionals' Code of Ethics in the Pipeline

By Desta Gebrehiwot

The Addis Ababa Construction Bureau has finalized the preparation of Construction Professionals' Code of Ethics Regulation in what it said would partially help address the irregularities and malpractices facing the construction sector.

The regulation is due to be referred to the Council of Ministers for inspection and endorsement shortly.

While the construction sector is growing in leaps and bounds, there appears to be different challenges particularly in terms of the quality that arises from malpractices both committed from the government and private contractors sides said Eng. Yonas Ayalew, Addis Ababa Construction Bureau Head, speaking to The Ethiopian Herald.
