KUWAIT: The Min­istry of Com­merce and In­dus­try yes­ter­day de­nied me­dia re­ports which sug­gested that Min­is­ter Dr Yousef Al-Ali in­tents to re­fer one of his as­sis­tant un­der­sec­re­taries to early re­tire­ment. The ru­mors also spec­u­lated that the of­fi­cial’s li­a­bil­i­ties would be frozen within two weeks.

The min­istry said in a press state­ment that the as­sis­tant un­der­sec­re­taries’ ad­min­is­tra­tive struc­ture has been re­cently up­dated by reshuf­fling some of the of­fi­cials in ac­cor­dance with work’s needs, as well as the min­istry’s strat­egy in de­vel­op­ing its sec­tors’ per­for­mance. “There is no cur­rent in­ten­tion to change or re­fer any of the se­nior of­fi­cials to re­tire­ment,” stressed the state­ment, point­ing out that min­is­ter Ali sup­ports all min­istry of­fi­cials out of his strong be­lief in their role.
