Yemen, Malaysia discuss preparations for joint committee meetings


SANA'A, Sep 15 (Saba) – Minister of Industry and Trade Yahya al-Mutawakil discussed on Monday with the Malaysian ambassador to the country Abdul Samad Othman current preparations for holding meetings of the Yemeni-Malaysian Commercial Committee.

The meetings are to be held at the end of 2008.

The meeting also dealt with efforts exerted to hold a conference on industry in Yemen planned to be held in December in the southeastern province of Hadramout.

It reviewed bilateral trade and industry relations between the two countries and means to boost them as well as learning from Malaysian experiences in this regard.

Al-Mutawakil stressed the necessity of holding the conference which he says will help promote the partnership between the public and private sectors to tackle problems hindering the industry development in the country and to improve the quality of production.

Reviewing promising industrial opportunities in Yemen, al-Mutawakil said Yemen is looking forward to an active Malaysian participation in the conference, inviting Malaysian businessmen to take advantage of investment merits provided by the Yemeni investment laws.
