UAE. Dubai Financial Market (DFM) is assiting Yemen to establish its own financial market and related infrastructure, reported the official WAM news agency, citing a senior Yemeni economic official.

The Undersecretary of Yemen's Ministry of Finance, Jalal Yaqoub, said he had met with Essa Kazim, the Executive Chairman of DFM, during his recent visit to Dubai to discuss how Yemen could benefit from  DFM's technical and technological expertise and how the DFM could promote and support Sanaa's project.

"The Ministry of Finance is intending to launch the Yemen stock exchange by year-end," Yacoub said, adding that nine government companies would be selected to implement governance standards in bid to list them in the bourse.
