TI: Yemen Chapter on the Way! [Archives:1998/48/Front Page]

November 30 1998

A group of Yemenis, concerned with the rising level of corruption in the country, are pushing arrangements to start a Yemeni NGO along the guidelines of Transparency International. The idea was first floated in March 1998.
“We want to contribute to the financial and administrative reforms of the country, which call for more accountability and transparency,” explained one of the promoters. He added that transparency will reduce the cost of doing business in Yemen by an average of 30%.
Benefiting from experience at the World Bank, Transparency International, and other circles, the promoters hope to launch the new NGO in mid-1999.
