Kuwait – Discover the Opportunity is a programme about the changing economic and investment climate of Kuwait, as well as showcasing the lifestyle and vibrant city life. The programme examines a new legislation that allows companies to be 100% foreign owned, in addition to a new PPP law, which provides incentives for foreign participation. We take a closer look at mega-projetcs such as the Shamal Az Zour Power and Water Plant, and showcase foreign companies such as IBM and Huawei, who are utilising the new law through the Kuwait Direct Investment Promotion Authority (KDIPA).
