The Minister of Transport stressed that the economy of the major powers is based on the ports and airports and generated billions of dollars in revenue reviewing the difficulties encountered in the development of transport areas, most notably the repeated attacks on the lands and parameter of the new Sana'a International Airport Project, Taiz International Airport and the seaports of the Yemeni Sea Ports Corporation.
