The European Union (EU) has launched a €20 million project for road connections between the Ethiopian border and Eritrean ports. The new project will be financed through the EU Trust Fund for Africa and through the United Nation's Office for Project Services. It will rehabilitate road connections between the Ethiopian border and Eritrean ports to boost trade and create jobs.

EU launches road project in Eritrea

This is the first phase of broader EU support to Eritrea, which is planned to scale up later this year. It is part of the EU's new dual track approach of strengthening political dialogue with Eritrea, encouraging political and economic reforms and improvement of human rights, as well as pursuing development co-operation to tackle the root causes of poverty, and to reinforce the peace agreement and economic integration.

“The European Union is committed to supporting Eritrea and Ethiopia in delivering their historic peace agreement, which ended twenty years of conflict. To back this, we are launching a €20 million program to rebuild the roads connecting both countries. This will boost trade, consolidate stability, and have clear benefits for the citizens of both countries through the creation of sustainable growth and jobs,” says EU Commissioner for International Co-operation and Development, Neven Mimica.

One of the commitments in last year’s Eritrea/Ethiopia peace agreement is that transport, trade and communications links between the two countries would resume. To achieve this, it requires rehabilitating the main arterial roads between the Ethiopian border and the Eritrean port of Massawa. This is the focus of this road project.
