Ethiopia to build a 5000km railway network

Ethiopian Transport and Communication Minister, Junedine Sado, said work on a railway network spanning 5,000 km is expected to start in the near future and that the government had established an agency to look into the construction of the railway line. “As the country develops its natural resources in the field of mining — exploiting its vast deposits of iron ore in the west, gas and oil fields in the east and commercial agriculture — it requires an effective transportation system,” said Junedine Sado.
