Baku, October 5, AZERTAC

A 750-km railway line linking Ethiopia’s capital, Addis Ababa and Red Sea state of Djibouti was formally inaugurated on Wednesday, according to Reuters.

The Chinese built project is to create new manufacturing industries, improve transport and further open up landlocked Ethiopia.

The new railway line is expected to cut the journey time to under 10 hours. Ethiopia is seeking to have 5,000 km of new lines working across the country by 2020.
