June 21 1999

The preparations for the Forum on Emerging Democracies, which is to be held in Sana’a from June 27-30, have entered the final stages, with just a week left before the delegates arrive. The Coordinator for the forum, Ms. Kendall Dwyer, has seen her team of colleagues from the National Democratic Institute grow to include three additional members, sent from NDI headquarters in Washington. More are expected to arrive next week. “We’re bringing in a great team of people to assist in this, from logistics, from programs, and from some of the participating countries. By the start of the conference, we will have some of NDI’s most experienced staff here, working on this great project. She added, “Of course, the donor community in Yemen continues to be a great support. Yemen has some very good friends.”
