The EU seeks to develop a closer relationship to Yemen, which would provide for increased political dialogue, trade and economic cooperation, development cooperation and democratic reform.

Improving the security situation, responding to population growth, addressing water shortage, introducing economic diversification and a continuous democratisation process are the main challenges for the country.

Yemen is neither party of the Barcelona Declaration nor of the European Neighbourhood Policy.

The relations between the EU and Yemen are currently governed by a Cooperation Agreement pdf - 84 KB [84 KB] which was signed in 1998. To assist addressing the main challenges, priorities of EU co-operation with Yemen are defined in the Yemen Strategy Paper 2007 – 2013 pdf - 298 KB [298 KB] Deutsch (de) français (fr) and Multiannual Programme 2007 – 2010 pdf - 80 KB [80 KB] Deutsch (de) français (fr) . The main aim of this co-operation is to support Yemen’s policy to promote good governance and to fight against poverty.
