Diversity of landscape, southern Arabia.

By Michael Jenner

Diversity of Landscape in southern ArabiaAs one travels through the regions of Yemen, from the hot coastal plain of the Tihama to the cool mountain villages of the central highlands and to the remote valleys of the Hadramut there is such a diversity of landscape, architecture, and vegetation that it is like moving from one country to another. Yet the impression of Yemen as a land of contrasts is deceptive. There are common strands of identity running through the fabric. The fiercely individualistic character of each place and its people reveals itself gradually not as a discordant factor in essence but as the way of the country as a whole. The common identity of Yemen does not exist necessarily in a sense of uniformity or consensus of opinion but rather in the vigorous defense of the small unit, be it family or tribe or village. A unified cultural heritage the diversity of expression.

Gateway to Yemen Electronic Project

The Ministry of Communication has recently revealed new plans aiming at the development of the internet services in Yemen, as well as the establishment of the ‘Gateway’ project. Sources at the Ministry said the project would be the first step in the establishment of the e-government in Yemen through using up-to-date information technology, newest ideas, standards, techniques, styles and establishing data processing network.
The USD 1 million project is expected to provide high speeds and other features.
In this regard, a symposium was held in Sana'a titled "Takeoff towards E-Government" in which a number of specialists and experts participated and discussed the essential technical methods to establish the Yemeni Gateway for internet and to establish information network connected to the international network.
During the symposium participants reviewed the project and its objectives, constituents, characteristics as well as its accomplished phases and horizon developments. The participants mapped out the strategic outline of the projects to be accomplished immediately, taking into consideration making of the project a success.
The project will be operated through 25 sites in Yemen and will also connect subscribers to the international internet networks through telephone lines. For the first time, the Ministry of Communication will implement this project not for profitable purposes but for providing better services for subscribers. Within the framework of this objective, the project will also provide universities and academic institutions with all the requirements needed to make advantage of this technology. The network will also provide Arabic information exchange, which facilitates transferring information among networks at the regional and international level. Source.
