Two re­ports

Chair­man of the par­lia­ment’s fi­nan­cial and eco­nomic af­fairs com­mit­tee MP Faisal Al-Shaya said that the com­mit­tee with­drew two re­ports about pub­lic ten­ders and com­mer­cial agen­cies for fur­ther study­ing.

Wafra farms

Kuwait Mu­nic­i­pal­ity de­cided to ex­pand the north­ern and east­ern bor­ders of Wafra farms by 150 me­ters on each side, said act­ing di­rec­tor Ah­mad Al-Man­fouhi in an of­fi­cial di­rec­tive he is­sued. Man­fouhi ex­plained that the Pub­lic Author­ity for Agri­cul­tural Af­fairs and Fish Re­sources (PAAAFR) had asked to ex­pand th­ese bound­aries by 82.7 me­ters in view of the pre­vi­ous 500-me­ter safety zone flank­ing the rail­way line due to be built. He added that since the safety area was re­duced to only 200 me­ters, the mu­nic­i­pal­ity agreed to ex­pand farm ar­eas by 150 me­ters.
