CAIRO: The Egypt-based Arab Organization for Industrialization has held talks with Yemen on ways to support its reconstruction and development.
Abdel Moneim Al-Terras, head of the AOI, and Anwar Muhammad Kalashat, the Yemeni minister of electricity and energy, discussed the possibility of long-term partnerships in the fields of industry, training and development, digital transformation and information transfer.
