Prof. Xu provided a briefing on China’s railway transportation technology which is a champion in the world. The visit of SWJTU to Ethiopia is primarily aimed at exploring with the Ethiopian government, enterprises and Addis Ababa University on how to further China-Ethiopia cooperation on training talents in the field of railway transportation, as well as working with World Bank to facilitate institutional buildup such as African Railway Education and Research Institute, which would contribute to the industrialization process of Ethiopia.

Amb. Tan, on his part, stressed that the railway transportation is one of the priority areas for China-Ethiopia cooperation, evidenced by Ethiopia-Djibouti Railway and Addis Ababa City Lightrail in promoting local development. Tan expressed his appreciation for SWJTU’s contribution to advancing China-Ethiopia cooperation on this field as well as his expectation that SWJTU could enhance technology transfer to Ethiopia, develop bilateral cooperation program on human resources training and promote tripartite cooperation among China, Ethiopia and the World Bank.
