ABSTRACT
It is a time of economic blues. Yemen's economic growth is down, poverty and unemployment are up, and the government still hasn't taken those vital steps to carry out economic reform. Lending money has always been risky because the country's legal system, notorious for not being able to solve business disputes, has done little to support banks in trying to collect debts from customers. Arab Bank, based in Amman, Jordan, was the pioneer in bringing modern products and services to Yemen. Along with a continued policy of restructuring and streamlining services, introducing retail products has helped Arab Bank take the number one spot among Yemen's commercial banks.
