Prime Minister Dr. Ma’een Abdulmalik stressed the need for effective intervention by the Central Bank of Yemen (CBY) to maintain the exchange rate of the national currency and enhance monitoring on the exchange companies.

His statement came as he presided over a meeting on Thursday of the board of directors of the CBY held in the interim capital Aden.

The session aimed to discuss necessary measures to maintain the exchange rate of the Yemeni Rial (YR) and deal with the Houthi rebel militia’s illegal measures by banning dealing with the newly issued national currency banknotes.
Dr. Ma’een underlined the need to join efforts in order to manage the economic hardship the country has been struggling with.

The governor of the CBY touched upon the positive impacts of getting the approval to withdraw from the Saudi deposit the payments no (33,34, 35) with total amount $227 million to cover the request of commercial and Islamic banks around the country to import the basic commodity.
