The 2035 vi­sion

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL - By Ner­min Al-Houti

Un­til when are we go­ing to con­tinue to sup­press innovative ideas?

This is not a dream as some peo­ple may think, rather it is a truth that one day we will see the civ­i­liza­tion’s sun em­a­nat­ing from Kuwait’s is­lands and re­flect its rays on Silk City and Kuwait. That is the re­al­ity His High­ness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ah­mad drew for us, and as we sat with Min­is­ter of Amiri Di­wan Af­fairs Sheikh Nasser Sabah AlAh­mad who took us in a trip 15 years into the fu­ture to see it with our own eyes and hear about the sta­tus of our chil­dren, and how he planned their fu­ture so as to guar­an­tee them a dig­ni­fied life just like what our grand­fa­thers have done for us.

Time is here for our ef­forts to be con­sol­i­dated and ideas should come to­gether to search for an al­ter­na­tive for the oil wealth, and this is what we heard from ‘Bu Ab­dul­lah’ over two hours with a com­pre­hen­sive vi­sion for all what has been and will be done in the Kuwait is­lands and the Silk City project. Sheikh Nasser Sabah Al-Ah­mad’s mes­sage was clear when he met with Pres­i­dent and mem­bers of Kuwait Jour­nal­ists As­so­ci­a­tion as well as some dig­ni­taries and me­dia men re­cently at Yar­mouk cul­tural cen­ter, giv­ing a de­tailed ex­pla­na­tion for His High­ness the Amir’s vi­sion about Kuwait’s var­i­ous al­ter­na­tive sources of in­come, so that we pre­serve our gen­er­a­tions fu­ture. That evening leaped with us to see how we can pre­serve Kuwait’s econ­omy and its fi­nan­cial cen­ter, and showed us that bright fu­ture so that we can see its shin­ing civ­i­liza­tion. We must come to­gether and unite our ideas to build the fu­ture and stay away from all noise and rigid ideas.

We need to take a mo­ment and think deeply of the words of ‘Bu Ab­dul­lah’, which made me vi­su­al­ize that fu­ture pe­riod and brought many ques­tions to my mind, the first of which: Un­til when are we go­ing to con­tinue to sup­press innovative ideas while we have the minds of 2035? Un­til when will we keep re­ject­ing the other? Un­til when will we keep plac­ing our­selves in the mold of rules that were made be­fore the 1970s? Un­til when will we not see the sun of the 2035 civ­i­liza­tion?—Trans­lated by Kuwait Times
