View in Online Reader

Kuwait is a constitutional sovereign state situated in the north-western corner of the Gulf, bordered by Iraq and Saudi Arabia. Despite challenges in the region, Kuwait has largely maintained a neutral stance, which has benefitted its multilateral trade, investment and political bonds with its neighbours and the wider global community. By continuing with efforts to diversify the economy and reduce its dependence on oil revenues, Kuwait is adding momentum to several large infrastructure development projects, and encouraging greater levels of private sector participation and investment. Ongoing and future projects are set to further integrate Kuwait into the global economy and raise its overall competitiveness.
