Ethiopia, Djibouti Take Over Railway Management from CRCC

The Chinese Railway Construction Corporation (CRCC) has officially transferred the management responsibility of Ethio-Djibouti Railway to the governments of Ethiopia and Djibouti at a ceremony held in Addis Ababa.

CRCC was undertaking the management of Ethio-Djibouti Railways in collaboration with the governments of Ethiopia and Djibouti over the past six years within the framework of the Chinese Belt and Road Initiative.

CEO of Ethiopia-Djibouti Railway Share Company Abdi Zenebe received the keys of the Ethio-Djibouti train from the Director General of the CRCC office, marking the launch of the joint Ethio-Djibouti railway management.

The event was attended by a large number of government officials from Ethiopia, Djibouti, and China, including the Speaker of Ethiopian House of Peoples’ Representative Tagesse Chafo.

With a total length of over 750 kilometers the railway joining Addis Ababa to the port of Djibouti is the first electrified railway project in Africa.
