Addis Ababa-Adama expressway

The Addis Ababa-Adama expressway is the first expressway in Ethiopia and East Africa. The road was built with financing support from the Chinese government and using Chinese technology and standards.

Connecting Ethiopia’s capital Addis Ababa to its second largest city Adama, the expressway facilitates the movement of people, improves transportation efficiency, and enhances Ethiopia’s ability to attract foreign investment. The two phases of the construction of the 100-kilometer-long road were completed in May 2014 and August 2016.

In addition to extensive use of local labor, the project’s Chinese contractor brought technical and managerial expertise to Ethiopia, contributing to its capability in infrastructure development.

亚的斯-阿达玛高速公路

亚的斯-阿达玛高速公路是埃塞俄比亚乃至东非地区首条高速公路。这条高速公路由中国政府融资支持,全部采用中国技术和标准承建。该条公路连通埃塞首都和该国第二大城市阿达玛,对改善埃塞民众出行、提高运输效率及吸引外商投资发挥着重要作用。该公路全长100多公里,一期和二期项目分别于2014年5月和2016年8月竣工。项目实施中,承建的中国企业不仅雇佣大量本地劳动力,也对埃塞输出了技术和管理经验,有助于埃塞加强基建能力建设。
