Yemeni President Abdrabbo Mansour Hadi accompanied by the Saudi ambassador to Yemen, Mohamed al-Jaber, arrived on Wednesday in the al-Mahra governorate south of the country, in order to lay the foundation for a series of developmental projects, Arabiya News reported.
According to a local source in al-Mahra, President Hadi will hold a meeting with the local authority, the military leadership and coalition forces in order to put an end to many of the problems experienced by the governorate.
President Hadi will announce the launch of a number of projects in al-Mahra, under the supervision of Ambassador Jaber, including al-Mahra University. He will also lay the foundation stone of al-Mahra hospital with a capacity of 300-beds, according to the source.
The Arab Coalition in Yemen announced at the beginning of this year the provision of $1.5 billion in aid to Yemen, which came following Saudi Arabia’s $2 billion monetary aid to Yemen’s central bank to help the country’s currency earlier this year.
