He noted that the political transition Yemen is experiencing now must go hand in hand with financial and economic transformation.
Dr. Tawfeeq Mohammed Abdul Jabbar, Head of Economics Dept. at College of Administrative Science, Taiz University, reviewed the responsibilities of expenditures within the framework of federalism, the allocation of resources in favor of both the regions and the federal government.
