Macro-economic environmental factors can be described as uncontrollable external forces that affect the organizational decision, performance, and laid strategies. Among the macro-economic factors are demographic factors, legal and political factors, economic factors, technology, and natural phenomena.
MTN has been able to fit into the economic environment of Angola and Ethiopia as a result of favorable economic policies such as flexible exchange rates, non-restrictive monetary policies, and more economic fiscal consolidation. Both Angola and Ethiopia opted to introduce a new service provider that is MTN who could bring competition into their nations among other service providers to benefit the users with quality services. MTN has quality services, efficient, fast, and technologically advanced services (3 G and 4 G broadband) to compete favorably in the market.
Angola has enjoyed political stability since the end of the 27-year civil war that was terminated in 2002 and further improvement to review the constitution that ensured peace. Ethiopia, on the other hand, has always been politically stable and a few political temperatures were cooled by the introduction of a new prime minister who preached peace. The political stability of these two nations offers the best conducive environment for MTN to carry out their activities without the uncertainties that can result from political unrest.
