Maybe you’ve heard of the Kuwait 2035 Vision? If you haven’t then please let me share with you this incredible video [Here] (I’m sorry its only available in Arabic, but I know the video will still blow you away) which outlines what the plan is, and where Kuwait will be in less than 20 years from now. Its pretty awesome stuff and I do hope I will still be here to see the dream realized. With plans to improve infrastructure, transport systems, education, healthcare, waste management, address environmental issues, enhance Kuwait’s regional and global presence in spheres such as diplomacy, trade, culture and philanthropy. Its an exciting time to be in Kuwait!
So how close is Kuwait to realizing this vision, this dream? Well work has already started on numerous projects, and I have listed a few below (source: http://www.newkuwait.gov.kw/en/):
