Chinese conductor Ding Jihua (R) trains the Ethiopian attendants at a railway station in suburban Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, Oct. 1, 2016. The 752.7-km Ethiopia-Djibouti railway, also known as Addis Ababa-Djibouti railway, was constructed by China Railway Group and China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation with a total investment of US$4 billion. It is Africa's first modern electrified railway with a designed speed of 120 km per hour. The railway is the first built using complete sets of Chinese equipment and standards outside China. It is also the second trans-national railway built by Chinese in Africa, following the Tazara railway, which was built in the 1970s linking Tanzania's Dar es Salaam with Zambia's Kapiri Mposhi.
