Ethio-Djibouti Railway claimed to provide crucial economic benefits to the region

Chinese sources claim that the Ethio-Djibouti railway, which is part of China’s Belt and Road initiative flagship infrastructure project for Africa, has been providing economic and social benefits to the people of Ethiopia and Djibouti.

The rail connection is one of the several development projects of the initiative which was put into operation on January 2018. With a total length of 756 kilometers, the railway that starts from Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia in the west, and ends in the port of Djibouti in the east, is the first electrified railway project in Africa.

The project is being operated and maintained by the joint venture of China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation (CCECC) under China Railway Construction Corporation (CRCC) and China Railway Group Limited (CREC).
