The 2004/2005 parliamentary session

The Parliament of Yemen concluded its budget session in January 2005. This was a stormy session in which many issues, not all related strictly to the budget, came up for elaborate discussion. The main topics were: (i) the price hike for oil products, especially diesel and fuel oil; (ii) the lag in public investment and growth in current expenditure; (iii) progress in the economic, financial and administrative reforms programme; (iv) control of corruption and smuggling; (v) implementation of the decentralization programme; and (vi) improvement of social security and pension systems.
