Ambassador Kirk Meets with Yemeni Minister Al-Mutawakel

Today, Ambassador Kirk met with Yemeni Minister of Industry and Trade, Dr. Yahya Al-Mutawakel, to discuss the status of bilateral market access negotiations and other issues related to Yemen’s efforts to accede to the World Trade Organization (WTO). In addition to market access negotiations, Yemen is working with the United States and other WTO Members to implement multilateral rules in areas such as intellectual property, technical barriers to trade, sanitary and phyto-sanitary measures, and customs valuation. Yemen started the WTO accession process in 2002.
