YEMEN. Yemen's Tourism Ministry said on Tuesday that the global financial crisis had a negative impact on economic and social role of tourism in Yemen, which reflected the decline of the number of tourists coming to Yemen and the cancellation of hotel bookings.

In its report issued recently, the Ministry said the impact of the crisis included a decline in cash proceeds of foreign currencies and the demobilisation of some employees working in the tourism and hotel sectors.

The report pointed to the decrease of the number of tourist investment projects in 2008 to 12 projects in comparative 27 projects carried out in 2007.
