Afghanistan wins UIC membership

UICMinistry of Public Works declared membership of Afghanistan to the International Union of Railways (UIC).

“Afghanistan was in dire need of railways. Our country’s geographic and strategic importance has enabled it to win this prestigious membership,” said Public Works Minister Eng. Najibullah Ozhan.

Afghanistan acquires this membership while completing the construction of regional railway line pieces through the two main trade and transit ports to the railway ring network by 2040.

 At present, the construction of 75 km Hairatan-Mazar-e-Sharif railway line has been completed and the construction of 124 km railway line from Herat to Islam Qala is under construction. These two pieces of railway are parts of a 3429 km railway line which will be completed by 2025.

Looking at Afghanistan’s geographic location, membership in this Union is not only beneficial to the country but also significant in terms of regional economic interaction among countries in the region. Afghanistan’s regional economic integration and credibility relates to the full integration and coordination with regional and international standards.
