Govt sup­ports, en­cour­ages na­tional in­dus­tries: Of­fi­cial

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

The gov­ern­ment is back­ing and en­cour­ag­ing na­tional in­dus­tries, Di­rec­tor Gen­eral of the Pub­lic Au­thor­ity for Hous­ing Wel­fare (PAHW) Bader Al-Wu­gayyan said. This came in Wu­gayyan’s state­ment to re­porters on Mon­day, on the side­lines of in­au­gu­rat­ing the 6th In­dus­tries and Con­struc­tion Ex­hi­bi­tion. He added that the gov­ern­ment pri­or­i­tizes na­tional prod­ucts in terms of ten­ders and pur­chases in ac­cor­dance with the de­ci­sions taken to pro­tect na­tional prod­ucts.

He re­ferred to in­struc­tions given to lo­cal fac­to­ries to in­crease pro­duc­tion ca­pac­ity to meet the needs of the cur­rent and fu­ture projects. The prices of con­struc­tion ma­te­ri­als are very suit­able and equiv­a­lent to the in­ter­na­tional prices, he said, not­ing that Kuwait has na­tional prod­ucts with com­pet­i­tive prices com­pared with for­eign ones. He stressed the high qual­ity of na­tional con­struc­tion prod­ucts. Mean­while, Chair­man of Kuwait Cham­ber of Com­merce and In­dus­try (KCCI) Ali Al-Ghanem ex­pressed in a sim­i­lar state­ment to re­porters his hap­pi­ness for Kuwait’s na­tional prod­ucts tak­ing part in the ex­hi­bi­tion. He ex­tolled the devel­op­ment of all in­dus­tries at the ex­hi­bi­tion, mainly the con­struc­tion ma­te­ri­als.

Dalia Wafaie, CEO of Expo Tag com­pany spe­cial­ized in or­ga­niz­ing ex­hi­bi­tions and con­fer­ences, said the ex­hi­bi­tion is held on an area of 2000 square me­ters and show­cases all con­struc­tion ma­te­ri­als and oth­ers. The event runs un­til tomorrow, with the par­tic­i­pa­tion of 65 lo­cal and for­eign firms. — KUNA
