Kuwait Industry

Efforts to diversify the economy away from hydrocarbons have helped drive industrial development. Non-oil GDP saw 10% growth in 2012, and during the 2006-12 period, manufacturing made up an average of 6.4% of GDP a year. Land, transport and electricity prices are currently the main challenges in growing this sector, but efforts are being made to overcome these issues. In early 2013, the government also announced a new $7bn fund to develop small and medium-sized enterprises and help support further economic diversification.
