Ethio-Djibouti Rail Transports 1.5 Million tns of Goods

Ethio-Djibouti Standard Gauge S.C. has managed to transport 1.45 million tns of goods in the current fiscal year. Operation, which had been halted due to the COVID-19 pandemic, has resumed with the railway line transporting 400 people a day. The 750Km long railway line, which connects Addis Abeba to the Port of Djibouti, was built by the China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation (CCECC) and China Railway Engineering Corporation (CREC) at a cost of 4.2 billion dollars, financed largely by the Export-Import Bank of China. A few weeks back, the share company graduated 34 captains who have undergone a series of trainings in Ethiopia as well as in China.
