It is difficult to assess fully the accuracy of ROYG reports on government revenues and expenditures, due to a lack of independent analytical organizations and the absence of any freedom of information laws. The lack of record-keeping among many Yemeni businesses, coupled with widespread corruption in the oil sector and the Tax and Customs Authorities, makes accurate budget information hard to come by for the government itself. World Bank representatives in Yemen tell us that different ROYG ministries and organizations publish widely varying budget figures and there is no information on how data, especially revenue figures, is derived.
