Description

The project is envisioned to improve regional connectivity and commerce. The 2,100 kilometers railway will increase access to China and Iran, including the Chabahar and Bandar-e-Abbas ports.

In April 2017, China and Afghanistan signed a Memorandum of Understanding to integrate the project into China's Belt and Road project.

As of February 2018, the technical and economic survey for the establishment of the multinational railway project was about 50% complete.
