Abstract

This paper examines the comparative trend and pattern of foreign direct investment (FDI) flows into Yemen for the last decade and the beginning of the current decade in comparison with that of selected countries in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).Astonishingly, the study detected a declining and fluctuating trend of FDI inflows into Yemen at the end of the previous decade and the beginning of the current decade.Together with other parameters for Yemen, this study analyzes the business environment of the country to gain a better perception of the situation and to identify galvanizing ideas for policy diagnosis and the direction of FDI in Yemen in the future. The results suggest that, in order to promote economic and financial stability, policy makers in Yemen should take action on several priorities that are discussed in the paper.
