Yemen with a difference
Yemen has adopted an economic policy based on free economy. The market mechanism encourages the private sector giving it a major role in the development of the country’s economy. The economic policy ensures private ownership, which can not be forfeited except for public interest and then with fair compensation. The investment law has created many investments opportunities and provided incentive to local and foreign investment in all aspects of the economy. The western mountain range represents a large area of the country. It is the range called Al-Sarat Mountains stretching longitudinally from the north to the south and transversally from the west to the east, which resembles the letter "L".
