Talk Africa: Africa’s high speed rail networks


Africa’s dream to connect all its major cities with an integrated High-speed railway network has taken a critical step forward.

Last week, a five-year action plan was signed between the African Union Commission & China. The Integrated High Speed Train Network is a flagship project of Africa’s continental Agenda 2063 and this five-year plan is a result of numerous planning sessions and exchange visits between the AUC & China to promote cooperation in railway, road, regional aviation networks and industrialization fields.

So what are the key milestones and implementation timelines of the project? And what economic, social and political outcomes will be produced by Africa’s High-Speed Rail Network?

Beatrice Marshall delves into these questions in this episode of Talk Africa!
