Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

KUWAIT: Kuwait Mu­nic­i­pal­ity plans to ex­am­ine, in line with His High­ness the Amir’s as­pi­ra­tion to trans­form the coun­try into a re­gional financial hub, a num­ber of mega projects such as con­struc­tion of la­bor towns and ren­o­vat­ing the shores ad­ja­cent to Al-Jahra district, the Min­is­ter of State for Mu­nic­i­pal Af­fairs said.

The mu­nic­i­pal­ity, in the fore­see­able fu­ture, will de­vote at­ten­tion to pro­posed projects such as build­ing the la­bor towns, a ser­vice and en­ter­tain­ment cen­ter in Al-Ugailah district, ren­o­vat­ing AlJahra Gov­er­norate’s beach­front and AlMubarkiah com­mer­cial area and set­ting up a safe sys­tem for man­ag­ing hard, liq­uid and haz­ardous waste, Mo­ham­mad Al-Jabri, also the Min­ster of Awqaf and Is­lamic Af­fairs, was quoted as say­ing in a state­ment re­leased by the Mu­nic­i­pal­ity’s Pub­lic Re­la­tions De­part­ment yes­ter­day.

“This fu­ture vi­sion­ary ap­proach will be en­listed in the Gov­ern­ment man­i­festo for the 15th leg­isla­tive term that would sub­mit­ted to the Na­tional Assem­bly,” said Jabri, not­ing that it is based on His High­ness the Amir’s out­look of trans­form­ing Kuwait into a lu­cra­tive fi­nan­cialc-om­mer­cial cen­ter in the Gulf re­gion.

The mu­nic­i­pal­ity will ex­am­ine other ven­ture such as pri­va­tiz­ing and spec­i­fy­ing us­age of land plots for hous­ing and in­dus­trial or com­mer­cial pur­poses. As to the State Fourth Struc­tural Plan, Jabri in­di­cated that it aims at dis­tribut­ing the land plots fairly; ac­cord­ing to fore­cast pop­u­la­tion growth, eco­nomic poli­cies and State’s needs.

Ur­ban de­vel­op­ment con­sti­tutes a fac­tor of the Mu­nic­i­pal­ity’s fu­ture vi­sion, in­cor­po­rat­ing the gov­ern­ment plat­form, he said, not­ing ne­ces­sity of build­ing the in­fra­struc­ture for ex­pand­ing ur­ban de­vel­op­ment.
