Kuwait is currently undergoing a major revamp of its transport and logistics networks, which are set to see a transformation. New roads, railways, airports and ports are either already being built or are in the pipeline, as part of the ambitious aim to re-establish Kuwait’s historical role as a regional centre for the sector. Meanwhile, the country is keen to attract foreign investment and participation in this revitalisation, with the government working hard to encourage partnerships and reduce obstacles to investment. Though challenges remain within uncertain global economic conditions, Kuwait is well positioned to take greater advantage of its strategic location within international and regional transport and logistics networks. This chapter contains interviews with Kamil Al Awadhi, CEO, Kuwait Airways; and Saud Al Naki, Vice-Chairman, Public Authority for Roads and Transportation.
