Morocco has inaugurated Africa’s first high-speed train line, able to go as fast as 200 miles per hour.
The train line was launched on Thursday, CNN reports, with the French President Emmanuel Macron and Morocco’s King Mohammed VI in attendance.
The high-speed trains will travel from Tangier to Casablanca, cutting the journey time by more than half.
The project, which has been in development for ten years, costs $2 billion and was financed by the governments of Morocco, France, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and the UAE.
