The private sector has voiced interest to invest in the energy sector as well as gas industries in Yemen, urging to provide suitable infrastructure to support the plan.
In a vision provided by the Yemeni Businessmen Club, it also expressed interest in investment in industrial zones as well as contribution to building special economic zones, Althawra newspaper reported on Wednesday.
The vision urged to provide necessary infrastructure such as electricity, building more power stations, telecommunications and transportation to help the private sector be part of the active contributors to the social welfare, it said.
The vision stressed the importance of good supply of electricity and freeing the internet through laying suitable rules encouraging competitiveness in this sector.
"There should be a number of policies and measures to encourage the private sector to invest in power generation such as building small power stations, for example five-megawatt ones," the vision suggested.
"Furthermore, the government should support generating power with renewable tools and projects to supply natural gas to industrial cities in Mukalla, Taiz, Aden and Hodeida with the aim to encourage gas industries," it added.
The government really needs to issue the special economic zones law and develop roads and communications networks to connect the whole country and ease investment flow, it said.
