Good news. I hope all the networks will function well as soon as possible. Till we get our sea port back we have to spread rail networks criss crossing all over Ethiopia. Recently many international companies have found many untouched raw materials from oil and diamonds to gold and potacium etc. Ethiopia needs a good rail road and good railway connections to export these products to foreign countries. No wonder there is a rush of international companies to Ethiopia. Our tourism is developing faster than was predicted. Folks, I am optimist of the future of Ethiopia.

It has no relevance to tigray because the rail is stopping at the southern tip of Tigray. It would help all Tigryans if the rail crosses mekele- adigrat-adowa-axum- endselsse- Humera and to Sudan.
