Yemen filed its "Instrument of Acceptance" with the World Trade Organization (WTO) today and is about to become the 160th member of the trade organization. Its membership is expected to be effective June 26, 2014.
Yemen applied for membership in 2000 and completed the accession process in 2013. It is one of the least developed countries to join the WTO. Yemen hopes to benefit from technical assistance and capacity building from the WTO Secretariat.
