September 15 2003

Sana’a, Sept, 13- In a statement published last Tuesday, the Yemeni Society for Promoting Domestic Products demanded that the cabinet set up a committee chaired by the vice prime minister, Mr. Ahmed Sofan to review means related to protecting consumers and ensuring permanent markets for domestic products.
An emphasis was placed on the need to reactivate the standardization authority as well as determining procedures to conduct the necessary checkups for foodstuff material and drugs.
This is expected to be achieved through mapping out a national strategy to protect consumers and national industries.
It is to be mentioned here that the Yemeni markets are flooding with every imaginable competing brands from the region and the world.
