Kuwait ‘eyes big private sector role in infrastructure projects’

January 2019

Oxford Business Group (OBG), a top global research and consultancy firm, has released a new report looking in detail at Kuwait’s efforts to diversify its economy and develop key sectors earmarked for growth, including manufacturing and telecoms.

The Report: Kuwait 2018 tracks the drive under way to boost the role played by the private sector in a raft of infrastructure projects, which are needed to support the country’s industrial development.

It features in-depth coverage of the myriad transport initiatives in the pipeline, including roads, bridges, ports and airport expansion plans, which will be pivotal in helping Kuwait to address congestion and connectivity issues.

OBG also puts the spotlight on the country’s rail transit system, which, together with other transport initiatives, is expected to be instrumental in helping the country make the most of its strategic location and carve a niche as a regional hub for international trade.

In addition, the report considers the rising demand for homes that are needed to accommodate Kuwait’s growing population and the positive impact this is having on the country’s construction sector.
