Abstract

Least developed countries have more challenges on e-government implementation than other courtiers among the world. Yemen however, as one of the least developed countries seeks to improve its e-government development index. This study assesses the e-government development scenario in Yemen comparing with other countries in the same region based on the e-government surveys conducted by the United Nations. The present paper further finds that online services in Yemen is the most needed index to be enhanced. Therefore, the national portal needs to be reviewed and rebuild. The low scores of Yemen e-government development comes from the poor economic situation of the country, low ICT indicators, and high illiteracy among citizens.
