Germans Keen to Develop Business with Yemen [Archives:1998/09/Local News]

March 2 1998

A high-ranking business delegation of the German Arab Association will be visiting Yemen from March 7th through 14th. The delegation is made up of 42 persons representing a wide range of German business interested in starting and/or developing with Yemen. The group is headed by Mr. Jurgen W. Mllemann, President of the German Arab Association and Member of the German Parliament. Mr. Mollemann is a former Federal Minister of Economics.
Dr. Helga von Strachwitz, Ambassador of Germany in Yemen, indicated that the visit comes in response to an invitation from President Ali Abdullah Saleh. “This is actually one of the fruits of the state visit to Germany by President Ali Abdullah Saleh in September 1997,” she said.
Yemen and Germany enjoy an exceptionally good relationship. “Our political understanding and aid cooperation is excellent. But our business relations can be strengthened,” said an official at the Yemeni Foreign Ministry.
This is exactly the objective of the visit.
