A real goldmine

Yemen's top exports:

Crude oil 81.5%

Refined oil products 11.8%

Fish & seafood 2.4%

Most of the remaining 4.3% of exports consists of various agricultural products.
Yemen is a fantastic country, spoilt by a few hundred fanatics in its 20 million population. When it all quietens down in years to come it will become a prime tourist destination.
Admit it, you brought a timeshare there 10 years ago thinking Yemen was a small fishing town on the southern coast of Spain, didn't you?

I think that most of the "agricultural exports" are probably Qhat.

If there is to be a proper, FCO-authorised NEO, I wonder how many will take advantage? Though there may be relatively few 'English' people there, that's far from being the same as the number of British passport holders.
Just what does Yemen have that is worth anything?
Well I was up in Beihan province for a few months in 1964/65. There was not a lot there, right on the edge of the Rub al Khali (Empty Quarter of 1,000 miles of desert) but the people were facinating, either your best friend or worst enemy, nothing in between. There were also relatively unexplored archeological treasures from the Sheban era.

I once flew up the coast between Aden and Salalah and thought the beaches below us were the best in the world. They just need some water supply and shark nets to make it a prime tourist area.
Worked there, never saw a women just pimply 14 yearolds with curly knives and an AKs, goats and national soldiers utterly off their guords on khat

Lawless ****ing tent dwellling throwbacks, " the original arabs" yep your not wrong there, still sat in the 16th century but driving oil paid landcruisers
