The Ethiopia-Djibouti Railway is the first international cross-border standard gauge electric railway in Africa, connecting the capitals of Ethiopia and Djibouti. With the help of two Chinese construction firms, the railway has been running since January this year. Despite bringing mammoth benefits to the local economy, the successful operation of the Ethiopia-Djibouti Railway also marks a milestone for China in accomplishing the transformation from Made in China to Operation by China.
