Ethiopia-to-Djibouti Rail to Be Complete in a Year

Ethiopia-to-Djibouti Rail to Be Complete in a Year, PM Says

An electrified rail link from Ethiopia’s capital along its main trade route to neighboring Djibouti will be completed by October 2015, Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn said.

The Railways Corp. project, funded with a $1.6 billion advance from the Export-Import Bank of China and by Ethiopia’s government, is half complete, he said yesterday in the capital, Addis Ababa.

“Priority has been given to it,” Hailemariam said in response to questions from members of parliament. “Next October, the line will be finished.”

The 656-kilometer (408-mile) railway is part of a five-year growth plan for Ethiopia started in mid-2010 that seeks to spend 569.2 billion birr ($28 billion) of public and private funding on infrastructure and industry. The new route to Djibouti may halve travel times, according to the government.

This is good news for Djibouti, goods will shipped via rail from Ethiopia to Djibouti, then exported from out port. More goods can be shipped by rail then trucks anyways.

Djibouti expects to make even more money from importing and exporting. Also Djibouti is developing the Shinile region and establishing water pipelines from Shinile to Djibouti and paying residents for it.

More Sugar factories will be built along the rail line so Somalis will have more jobs :up: It's good news all around.
