KUWAIT CITY, Sept 16, (KUNA): The Min­is­ter of State for Mu­nic­i­pal Af­fairs has voiced dis­at­is­fac­tion at green­ing works along the coun­try’s roads and at public lo­ca­tions.

All slack civil ser­vants who erred in mak­ing con­tracts for beau­ti­fy­ing the high­ways will be held ac­count­able, Mo­ham­mad Al-Jabri warned in a state­ment on Satur­day.

A mu­nic­i­pal­ity’s state­ment in­di­cated that Min­is­ter Al-Jabri was ad­dress­ing green­ery de­te­ri­o­ra­tion along the main roads through­out Kuwait dur­ing a meet­ing that grouped of­fi­cials of the Public Author­ity for Agri­cul­ture Af­fairs and Fish­eries and con­trac­tors for beau­ti­fy­ing plants.

“Time of deal­ing un­firmly with fault­ing com­pa­nies has gone,” the min­is­ter stressed, warn­ing that pun­ish­ment awaits those re­spon­si­ble for the green­ing fail­ure at the public spots, where new costly plants have with­ered.

Mean­while, the Min­istry of Com­merce and In­dus­try on Satur­day af­firmed that the re­cent visit to China by a Kuwaiti del­e­ga­tion paved the way for a fu­ture eco­nomic part­ner­ship.

The del­e­ga­tion, headed by Min­is­ter of Com­merce and In­dus­try Khaled Al-Roud­han, met with of­fi­cials of 22 gov­ern­ment author­i­ties, public and pri­vate con­glom­er­ates, said the min­istry in a state­ment al­lud­ing the mis­sion on Sept 5-11.

Talks dur­ing the visit dealt with lur­ing more Chi­nese in­vest­ments to Kuwait, bring­ing in Chi­nese ex­per­tise and back­ing medium and small en­ter­prise.

The mis­sion was in line with His High­ness the Amir strat­egy on trans­form­ing Kuwait into a global busi­ness hub, the 2035 State vi­sion and im­ple­ment­ing the gov­ern­ment ap­proach to find in­come re­sources other than oil. The of­fi­cial state­ment af­firmed the ap­proach to pre­pare the busi­ness en­vi­ron­ment in Kuwait for boost­ing en­ter­prise and di­ver­sify the econ­omy.
