About the Country

ICT sits at the heart of Kuwait Government’s 2035 strategy. The ‘New Kuwait’ 2035 strategy looks at the ambitious infrastructure improvements in transport and reforms to administration, housing and healthcare. New Kuwait identifies finance, renewable energy and IT as sectors that can help make Kuwait a centre for innovation and excellence. The development plan intends to transform the country into financial, cultural and institutional leader by 2035. The vision is based on the 7 pillars namely – public administration, infrastructure, living environment, healthcare, human capital, economy and global position.
