BEIJING, Jun 23 (FAM) – With the recent launch of operation of Kenya’s Mombasa-Nairobi railway, China’s remarkable infrastructure capabilities are again highlighted in promoting regional interconnectivity to pave way for global economic growth.

Ronnie Lins, CEO of Center China Brazil: Research &Business, commended China’s infrastructure capabilities as leading the world. “China’s infrastructure capabilities take a lead worldwide, effectively pushing forward its economic and social development,” he said.

The Chinese-built 472-km-long Standard Gauge Railway (SGR) linking Kenya’s capital Nairobi and East Africa’s biggest port city Mombasa comes as part of ambitious efforts to build a 2,700-km East Africa corridor connecting Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, South Sudan and other East African countries.
