Kuwait is forging ahead with infrastructure upgrades as part of its $107bn National Development Plan to support all modes of transport. Home to 6% of the world’s oil reserves, hydrocarbons continue to define Kuwait’s current transport infrastructure, yet contemporary strategic goals – in line with Vision 2035 – look to develop the entire sector with diversification as the central focus.
