Abstract/Citation: Provides for the establishment of free zones in Yemen as well as a Public Authority for the Free Zones to administer them. S. 2 declares the city of Aden a free zone. S. 16 provides that projects operating in a free zone may not be nationalized or confiscated, or have their assets frozen or impounded save by a judicial order. Employers shall give priority to Yemeni workers (s. 17). The laws of Yemen shall apply in a free zone as long as they do not conflict with the Free Zone Law, and provisions of the social insurance law shall apply to Yemeni workers in the free zone, unless employers offer a more favourable insurance plan (ss. 33 and 35).
