Yemen in Talks with 3 Donors on Cooperation

The Islamic Development Bank and Yemen are reportedly in the final stages of preparations toward implementing the first endowment investment project in Yemen’s al-Ashash region. The project includes the construction of some 1,200 units in 50 resident towers and a shopping center, among other public service facilities, Saba News reports.

Meanwhile, Yemeni officials have met with representatives from the Netherlands and Germany to explore how the Middle Eastern country can expand its cooperation with the two European donors, according to Saba News. On Oct. 4, Minister of Planning and International Cooperation Abdul-Karim al-Arhabi discussed cooperation ties with the Netherlands ambassador to Yemen, while Chairman of the Higher Committee for the Supervision of Tenders Abdul-Malik al-Arashi conferred with GTZ’s good governance director to review cooperation in the areas of economic reforms and transparency.
