Standstill over project funding

July 2013
MEED: Middle East Economic Digest;7/19/2013, Vol. 57 Issue 29, p32
The article discusses a lack of progress in Yemen in spending foreign aid on infrastructure projects. Although over $12 billion in aid has been committed to the country, little has actually been delivered and spent. Donors say corruption in Yemen and the government's failure to act are at fault, while Yemeni officials blame conditions donors have attached to their funds.
