Addis Djibouti Railway will be formally put into operation.
Addis Djibouti Railway will be formally put into operation. It is a joint effort of Ethiopia, Djibouti and China. For well over 13 months, tens of thousands technicians and workers from the three countries have worked tirelessly on the site of construction stretching 750 kilometers.
It is the first standard gauge electrified railroad on the continent build with Chinese standard and technology, and certainly it will not be the last. Many stand to benefit from it.
First and foremost, it is going to contribute to the economic well being of Ethiopia and Djibouti. Ethiopia as a land-locked country will be increasingly turned into a land-linked one with transport cost significantly drop and efficiency greatly improved.
The status of Djibouti as a hub of international seaport will also be enhanced. During the construction, nearly 40,000 local jobs have been created, and many of those have gained valuable skills and technics to operate sophisticated railroad machines. The expertise they gain will help their countries develop related industries in the days ahead.
