May 3 1999

A number of Industrialists and businessmen from Yemen and Lebanon met to try and revive the commercial and trade cooperation, between the two countries.
The visiting Yemeni delegation was headed by Mr. Abdul Jabbar Saeed, who had invited his Lebanese counterparts to focus more on Yemen. “The Lebanese businessmen have not realized the importance of the Yemeni markets and the opportunities to expand their markets,” said Mr. Abdul Jabbar. Mr. Jacques Sarraf, president of the Lebanese Industrialists Association, in his speech expressed the importance of the strategic location of Yemen, as a connection to a huge market. The businessmen hope that this visit will strengthen the trade links between the countries.
