SANA'A February 05. 2023 (Saba) - A meeting in Sana'a, chaired by Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Ahmed Muhammad Al-Shawtari, discussed on Sunday the executive procedures for the Cabinet's decision to prevent the import of goods from countries that violate Islamic sanctities.
The meeting reviewed steps for importers to boycott imported products from countries covered by the Cabinet’s decision and start searching for alternative markets to import goods, specifically from countries that are not hostile to Islam and respectful of the specificities and culture of other countries.
The meeting touched on the directives of the Supreme Committee to boycott the products of countries that violate Islamic sanctities by preparing a strategy for shifting towards local commodities instead of imported ones, and working on developing economic policies to diversify the national production base, relying on local production inputs, and the need to work on developing the necessary infrastructure to increase industrial and agricultural production.
The meeting dealt with the efforts of the Ministry of Industry to provide facilities to the commercial sector and importers from all governorates to facilitate the import process from the port of Hodeidah and solve any problems facing commercial and economic work.
At the meeting, the Deputy Minister of Industry indicated the ministry's keenness to strengthen partnership with the private sector in all its activities, address the problems it suffers from, and respond to challenges in a way that contributes to strengthening the pillars of the national economy and increasing the competitive capabilities of the various economic sectors.
He pointed to the necessity of integrating efforts to implement the decisions of the Council of Ministers to boycott countries that violate the sanctity of Islamic sanctities.
Al-Shawtari affirmed the ministry's readiness to provide all necessary facilities for the private and commercial sectors to import through the port of Hodeida.
While the Undersecretary of the Ministry of Industry for the Internal Trade Sector explained that one of the international shipping companies has expressed its willingness to transport goods for Yemeni merchants through all shipping lines to the port of Hodeida.
For their part, the merchants expressed their willingness to contract with this company to transport their goods to the port of Hodeidah, given its strategic importance to the commercial movement in the speed of transportation, the reduction of the price of the transportation cost, the lifting of suffering, and the improvement of the livelihood of the Yemeni people.
It was agreed to invite merchants to hold a meeting tomorrow at the Ministry of Industry to discuss all arrangements, procedures and steps necessary for the import process from the port of Hodeida.
The meeting approved the continuation of meetings between the ministry and the private sector to develop mechanisms to implement the decisions of the Council of Ministers to boycott and prevent the import of goods from companies and countries that are abusive and hostile to Islam and Muslims.
During the meeting, it was emphasized to boycott the products of countries that adopt hostile behavior that offends the Holy Quran, Islam, and Muslims.
