UAE rail expansion part of regional ambition

A new article at CNN puts a spotlight on UAE's railway ambitions. "The top line implication ... is that it has the potential to transform the UAE economy -- and not just the UAE, but potentially the GCC [Gulf Cooperation Council]," says Richard Thompson, editorial director of the Middle East Economic Digest. In November 2018 there were discussions about a larger railway network eventually connecting Oman and Israel and the UAE. These larger ambitions are far from realized but it is worth looking at the recent article at CNN to give a sense of the larger project. See also November 2018 Jerusalem Post article on this topic.
