Ethiopia railway summit to take place next week
Addis Ababa, September 14, 2018 (FBC) – The Ethiopia Railway Summit will take place at the Sheraton Hotel in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia from 17 to 18 September 2018.
The first-of-its-kind event dedicated to the development of Ethiopia’s railway sector is organized by the Ethiopian Railways Corporation (ERC) in partnership with the China Africa Advisory and RDN Global.
The high-level gathering provides a unique platform for international railway technology companies, investors and financial institutions to engage with Ethiopian decision-makers and technical experts on concrete cooperation possibilities.
Participants will receive first-hand information on Ethiopia’s railway transportation and investment policies, national and international priority projects and related procurement, financing and investment opportunities.
Recent developments in the domestic public-private partnership framework and a possible partial privatization of the railway sector are the background against which the Summit takes place.
