The European Union Yemen Delegation and the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Yemen are proud to announce the launch of a new initiative to identify the economic and development priorities in Yemen.

This 2-year  Track 2 initiative, which was launched in Bonn, Germany, on Friday March 24th , will provide a platform to reimagine the Yemeni economy through a series of research studies, economic forums, and public outreach activities to build a wide consensus on the economic and development priorities in Yemen.
