DUBAI – Morocco’s high-speed train that will link two cities received Dh514 million investment from the Abu Dhabi Fund for Development (ADFD).
The new train link spans 200 kilometres and connects Tangier with Casablanca, with travel time between the cities to take just two hours instead of six.
“A first-of-its-kind initiative in the African continent, this state-of-the-art high-speed train will dramatically improve travel times and living standards,” Mohammed Saif Al Suwaidi, director general of ADFD, at the inaugural ceremony that was also attended by King Mohammed VI of Morocco and French President Emmanuel Macron.
ADFD has invested more than Dh80 billion in development projects in 88 countries. GAD/Expat Media
