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.” – More on the Diplomacy page
