About Yemen

The country of Yemen was formed in 1989 after the unification of the North territory(Yemen Arab Republic) and the Southern territory (People's Democratic Republic).However there was no clear political policy and the country remained divided, and thus a civil war between the former North and South Yemen in 1994 damaged the infrastructure of the country.

Most of Yemen comprises of rugged terrain and mountains with trackless desert land, leaving much of the area unsuitable for any human habitation.

Yemen's desert climate. leads to t he west coast is very hot and humid, while the east is also very hot, dry and prone to some very dusty conditions.

About Yemen

Yemen is almost entirely dependant on agriculture , even though there is very little fertile land.The main crops grown are coffee, wheat, vegetables, millet,sorghum, fruit and cotton.

The coastal waters have made fishing an important industry, and there are many canning factories on the coast.

There are other manufacturing industries, which produce aluminium, plastic,rubber,paints, matches and textiles.Only these are on a very small scale.Efforts to modernize these industries is restricted by Yemen's lack of funds.
