This paper provides an overview of the national railway network project, which was announced in the Government’s Economic Priorities Program for 2021-2023, explaining the economic basis of the project based on theoretical references of the railway sector. Additionally, the paper examines the national railway's interactions with global logistical interconnection projects across the Middle East, where large-scale projects were announced both in complementary and conflicting contexts, which demonstrates that the national railway cannot be separated from regional and international turmoil.
