Reconnecting Eritrea and Ethiopia through rehabilitation of the main arterial roads in Eritrea

The aim of the project was to contribute to reinforcing peace and economic integration between Eritrea and Ethiopia. Following the historic agreement between Eritrea and Ethiopia in July 2018, which reconnected the two countries and provided Ethiopia access to Eritrea's ports as a key priority, it was anticipated that this would help boost both countries' economies and generate job opportunities.

The specific objective was to improve transport connectivity for commercial trade along the arterial roads between Massawa and the Ethiopian border.
