Yemen and the UNDP have recently signed in Sana'a three agreements including support of three projects for the promotion of vegetables and fruits exportation and control of fish quality for export as well as improvement of registration and commercial licensing capacities.

The agreement, signed by deputy premier, the minister of planning and international cooperation and the UNDP resident representative in Yemen comes as part of the government's programs and plans aimed at pushing forward promising sectors related to the citizens living, especially in the countryside. The aim is also to guarantee opening broader areas for marketing agricultural and fish products. Those projects are expected to contribute to improvement of investment and abridgement measures of registration with the ministry of industry and trade through improving capabilities of commercial and industrial registration and provision of technological information in this field. This is also expected to improve investment climate in Yemen. Those projects would also participate in improvement of fruit and vegetables quality.
