Addis Ababa-Djibouti Railway Project Nears Completion

The project could be a model for Sub-Saharan countries as it clearly shows commitments of the two countries governments.

The Ministry of Transport said that the Addis Ababa-Djibouti Railway construction project is nearing completion and will begin operation in the near future.

Opening the 8th Ethio-Djibouti Railway Project Joint Commission meeting yesterday at Sheraton Addis, Minister Workineh Gebeyehu said that the transport infrastructure has significant contribution for industrialization and structural transformation. “It is difficult to think of rapid economic development, industrialization and international competitiveness without efficient, high quality and modern transport infrastructure.”
