Venue: Four Seasons Hotel London at Park Lane, Hamilton Place, Park Lane, W1J 7DR, London
Date: 17 June 2019
Time: 09:00 - 16:00
Organiser: The Business Year

With oil no longer the reliable resource it was, Kuwait is increasingly looking to the private sector to diversify and boost its economy across a range of sectors. By bringing together senior public officials and top local and foreign business leaders at this event, the Business Year hopes to inspire a dialogue that will bring new momentum to Kuwait's vision. Hosting this event in London is simply the best way to showcase the country's ambition to the entire global investor community.
