Advice to Kuwaiti & foreign business people: “I strongly advocate foreign investments because it paves way to economic prosperity. It appears that the basic economic situation in Kuwait is much favorable than any other time. Improvements in national economy will be largely dependent on reconstruction efforts, security and sound monetary and fiscal policies. The Central Statistics Department of the Ministry of Planning’s figures show that the contribution of oil and gas sectors has declined steadily. This is mainly due to fluctuations in the oil market. Taking into consideration that our natural asset is depleting and the country has few other resources emphasis should be give to other modes of economic growth.
It is to be noted that Kuwait is one of the pioneers in the Middle East region allowing foreign investment in its upstream. Kuwait consolidated its oil sector; privatized many of the government owned companies and allowed foreign investment even in its oil sector. Globalization of the world economy and trade has had a considerable impact on Kuwait’s economy, which is keeping its gates open for the foreign investors through promulgation of many new laws supporting foreign investors.
