The project aims to rehabilitate the main arterial roads in Eritrea along the Eritrea-Ethiopia trade corridor (Massawa - Nefasit - Ser'ha - Zelambesa) in order to help reinforce peace and economic integration between Eritrea and Ethiopia. Following the historic peace agreement between Eritrea and Ethiopia in July 2018, reconnecting the two countries and providing Ethiopia access to Eritrea’s ports is a key priority. This will help to boost both countries’ economies, increase regional economic integration and generate job opportunities.
The specific objective is to improve transport connectivity for commercial trade and for people along the arterial roads between Massawa and the Ethiopian border.
