Yemen and the World Bank (WB) signed here on Wednesday three financing agreements worth $ 206 million in the areas of social affairs, basic education and roads.

The second agreement includes providing a financing support worth $ 66 million for the basic education development, while the third agreement includes supporting the roads facilities administration project at a cost of $ 40 million dedicated for improving the roads ,creating job opportunities and providing the necessary infrastructure facilities to promote domestic trade. After the signing ceremony, Al-Sadi praised the effective contributions of the WB in supporting the paths of development and stability in Yemen through the rapid response to the priority needs of Yemen, expressing Yemeni government’s appreciation for the Bank’s keenness to rapidly fulfill the donors pledges to Yemen . For his part, the WB’s Hartwig Schafer pointed out that the amount allocated to finance the three projects represents the first installment of the total funding grant pledged by the Bank to Yemen amounting to $ 400 million, during the Riyadh conference for donors.
