News in Brief

Arab Times - - LO­CAL -

Act­ing Di­rec­tor Gen­eral of Kuwait Fire Ser­vice Direc­torate (KFSD) Ma­jor Gen­eral Eng Khalid AlTarkait vis­ited the In­dus­trial In­sti­tute at the Pub­lic Author­ity for Ap­plied Ed­u­ca­tion and Train­ing (PAAET) re­cently.

Dur­ing the visit, Al-Tarkait looked into the readi­ness of the in­sti­tute to con­duct abil­ity tests for fire ex­tin­guish­ing en­gi­neer­ing diploma ap­pli­cants.

He re­vealed the num­ber of ap­pli­cants to­taled 190 and they need to pass two ex­ams – psy­cho­log­i­cal and sci­en­tific. He said the sci­en­tific exam in­cludes Chem­istry, Physics, Math­e­mat­ics and English.

Di­rec­tor of the in­sti­tute Eng Muham­mad Bu Hamdi praised the good re­sults of co­or­di­na­tion be­tween KFSD and PAAET, point­ing out that the ex­ams are easy and will be cor­rected au­to­mat­i­cally.


Aussie sheep to re­turn: An Aus­tralian Com­pany will soon ob­tain a li­cense to ex­port live live­stock to Kuwait, re­ports Al-Na­har daily.

The daily quoted a re­port pub­lished by Syd­ney-based Aus­tralian news­pa­per, The West Aus­tralian, on Fri­day.

“This could hap­pen within days, as the ap­pli­ca­tion for the li­cense has been sub­mit­ted to re­spon­si­ble au­thor­i­ties in the two coun­tries more than two months ago. The li­cense is ex­pected to be out be­fore the end of this month,” says Mike Jor­dan – head of the Aus­tralian branch of the sub­sidiary.

He re­vealed two Kuwaiti sheep car­ri­ers are pre­par­ing to trans­port live sheep to Kuwait; one of which has the ca­pac­ity for 80,000 heads while the other is ca­pa­ble of trans­port­ing 70,000 heads. The pe­riod be­tween is­su­ing the li­cense and start­ing ship­ping op­er­a­tions will be less than three weeks, he added.

It is worth men­tion­ing that Kuwaiti Live­stock Trans­port and Trad­ing Com­pany (Al-Mawashi) agreed last month to set up a new com­pany for im­port­ing live live­stock from South Africa in or­der to meet the coun­try’s sheep needs af­ter Aus­tralia stopped ex­port­ing live sheep to the Mid­dle East in the wake of the death of 2,400 heads on board a ship head­ing to that area.
