We hope to promote collaboration with regional and international financial institutions in order to seek more support for the reconstruction and recovery programs, said the official, quoted by Saba news agency.

Batheeb’s remarks came in the context of the Arab Forum for Sustainable Development, held in Beirut, Lebanon.

Earlier this year, the minister revealed that the conflict caused economic losses worth 126 billion dollars.

According to the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, two-thirds of Yemen’s population, some 20 million people, need humanitarian assistance and 80 percent live below the poverty line.
