Dr. Abdulsalam Aljofi, Minister of education said that the final preparations for launching a new educational satellite channel are close to completion. This channel will be a positive contribution to educational facilities in Yemen.

The educational channel was conceived in 1995 and has only now become operational, a record feat of bureaucratic efficiency. The channel will contribute to education throughout the region by utilizing expensive technology to reach the impoverished masses.
