Cabinet mulls roadmap to hasten development project implementation

Kuwait’s cabinet said on Wednesday it has reviewed a three-point “roadmap” which will hasten the implementation of development projects across the country.

The draft plan, which aims to “support the national economy and meet the needs of comprehensive development,” includes short-term goals (nine), which will be completed this summer, medium-term goals (five) and long-term goals (four), Foreign Minister and State Minister for Cabinet Affairs Sheikh Ahmad Nasser Al-Mohammad Al-Sabah said after an extraordinary meeting at Sief Palace.

The projects highlighted are in sustainable energy, the development of Failaka Island, environmental fuels, the beautification of Kuwait City, healthcare and Kuwait International Airport, amongst others.

The cabinet has tasked ministerial committees with the monitoring and implementation of the state-funded projects, which will offer the country revenues, and has sought to utilise the expertise and recommendations of consultants, specialists and civil society towards this goal
