Launch of the Rethinking Yemen’s Economy (RYE)
March 27, 2017
A Track Two Initiative
The European Union 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. The initiative is implemented through a partnership between DeepRoot Consulting, Sana’a Center for Strategic Studies and the Center for Applied Research in Partnership with the Orient (CARPO). It aims to engage Yemeni development leaders from the private sector, academia, and economic experts in identifying Yemen’s economic and development priorities in Yemen during and after the conflict.
This 2-year initiative, which was launched in Bonn, Germany, on Friday, 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.
