Djibouti-Addis Ababa Railway and Role of China

The New York Times published on 7 February 2017 an article titled "Joyous Africans Take to the Rails, with China's Help" by Andrew Jacobs.

The article credits China for its financing and building a new railway between Djibouti and Addis Ababa, noting that the United States did not have the vision to take on the project. Actually, the problem in the United States is less about vision and more about lack of financing.
