Kuwait Owes to Focus on Tourism

Even though oil prices dropped in Kuwait, the country retains its security and social stability and maintains a strong

financial centre, which helps focus on the development of tourism, a recent report revealed.

The study, undertaken by Leaders Group for Consulting and Development, the representative of the World Tourism Organization in Kuwait, also documented that, despite a large government expenditure exceeding USD11 billion, the country's industry falls behind Gulf countries in terms of infrastructure, number of visitors and income generated from tourism. Lastly, the report showed that the sector could play a significant role in the development strategy for the period 2015 – 2020, particularly due to the current agreement between the parliament and the government, and the ambitious plans to diversify the economy away from its dependence on oil.
