Market Information

The government is strongly committed to Kuwait Vision 2035 which seeks to transform Kuwait into a financial, cultural and trade leader. To achieve its aim, the government plans to invest in infrastructure, housing, power and water, as well as the oil sector. The government plan to use PPP’s as a vehicle to drive this growth opening the door to foreign involvement.

Kuwait is also one of the Middle East's emerging healthcare markets, with the government having awarded US$11 billion in new healthcare infrastructure and healthcare projects. The demand for new hospitals, medical tourism and medical staff will grow as this sector develops.

As the fourth richest country in the world per capita, Kuwaiti’s enjoy a high quality of life and have a young and well-educated population who are keen to consume the latest foreign products and technology. The improvements in infrastructure and the absence of taxes gives Kuwait an appeal that is unique in the Middle East.
