In the year 1825, railroads and rail transport seemed to be ‘palpably absurd’. None could imagine that a locomotive could go faster than a horse pulled stagecoach. However, a few years later almost every young boy in Europe dreamt of being a train conductor. The very idea of rail which people thought to be absurd became the center of European industrialization and a marker of a collective European identity. This year, the European Union commenced the European Year of Rail, drawing our attention to the importance of European train connections in travel, tourism, transport, and logistics. This initiative aims to boost passenger and freight movement via rail across Europe, especially after the pandemic.

The Chinese presence in the continent of Africa has been growing since the beginning of this millennium. With the launch of the Belt and Road Initiative, over 42 African countries signed MOUs in transport and industrial development sectors. The lack of infrastructure within the continent is still seen as an impediment to growth. However, the multiple investments made by China in these nations have encouraged progress and facilitated the inclusion of African countries within the global competition.
