The Chamber of Commerce warns of the consequences of Aden Central Bank’s decision
The Chamber of Commerce and Industry in the Capital Secretariat has warned of the repercussions of the Central Bank of Aden’s decision to stop opening credits from commercial banks in Sana’a.
In a statement, the Chamber of Commerce considered this step an additional obstacle to the activity of trade and import of foodstuffs and consumer goods necessary for the livelihood of the Yemeni people.
The statement pointed out that this decision could cause a humanitarian catastrophe with ominous consequences.
The statement stressed that the central bank in Aden should work to facilitate trade and economic activity for the private sector.
The Chamber of Commerce called on all monetary and financial authorities in the country not to take measures that would aggravate the conditions and livelihood of the people.
It also called on the United Nations and international humanitarian organizations to intervene and prevent a humanitarian catastrophe due to the cessation of import activities for food and consumer goods and to put pressure to spare the economic and financial file from the conflict and to neutralize the central bank and all economic activities.
