Unlocking The Potential of Yemen's Private Sector
A study by HSA Group's Economic Development Initiatives
Yemen’s Resilient Private Sector
Despite being severely impacted, Yemen's private sector remains vibrant and is a potential partner for the government and international community to addressing the country's challenges and initiating the recovery process. Throughout the conflict, the private sector has been the primary source of employment and economic activity, as well as playing a vital role in supporting millions of Yemenis through philanthropic and charitable activities. Moreover, it has preserved the critical infrastructure and services that prevent the markets from collapsing entirely.
Sustaining Yemen Manufacturing Capacity
Having a strong manufacturing industry is, now more than ever, crucial for Yemen's economic recovery, stability, and growth. Industrialization and manufacturing contribute to economic growth and sustainable development, poverty reduction, and increased stability in fragile and conflict-affected states.
Understanding the impact on Private Sector
To understand the impact of the conflict in Yemen at enterprise level, this study presents an analytical framework along four dimensions, as shown in the figure on the left.
There is room for significant improvement in engaging the private sector as partners to jointly analyze challenges facing humanitarian and development efforts, co-design possible solutions, and co-implement these solutions, unleashing the potential of the Yemeni Private Sector as a driver of economic growth and recovery.
- Focus on Private Sector Development interventions now, not later in the recovery process.
- Engage with the private sector as a key partner, not only as a supplier, beneficiary, or a revenue source.
- Consider Private Sector Development needs of Micro-, Small and Medium-sized Enterprises and large firms.
