In 1963 Abdulhak founded the company "Shaher Trading", an enterprise involved in petroleum, soft drinks, tourism and property. Abdulhak is known as the "King of Sugar" in Yemen, where he holds great influence also politically. He is a personal friend of president Ali Abdullah Saleh. In spite of his prominent position in Yemeni society, Abdulhak is media-shy; he never grants interviews and no photo of him has ever been printed in the local press. In December 2009, his picture was shown for the first time in public media when Norwegian newspaper VG printed a private photograph of him. As a titan of industry in the MENA region, he has held prominent positions in supporting growth in developing economies.
