External Debt in Yemen

Yemen External Debt | Economic News & Forecasts

Yemen - External Debt

The economy was given some breathing room in recent weeks. The two-month truce brokered by the UN that was due to expire in early June was extended for a further two months, which bodes well for activity. Moreover, in early April, the World Bank approved an additional USD 300 million grant, which will benefit over 9 million citizens through social protection programs. Additionally, Saudi Arabia is set to make the final USD 174 million payment of its 2018 deposit, which totals USD 2 billion and aims to support Yemen’s currency. However, the USD 33 million raised at the UN’s emergency fundraiser fell way short out of the USD 144 million needed to unload the oil tanker moored off the coast. As a result, the risk of an oil spill and subsequent environmental damage remains.
