Min­is­ter touts Kuwait Air­ways re­vamp scheme

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

A plan to de­velop Kuwait Air­ways Cor­po­ra­tion (KAC) is cur­rently in the works and “will be com­pleted be­fore the year is out,” Kuwait’s Min­is­ter of So­cial Af­fairs and La­bor said. In an in­ter­view with a lo­cal news­pa­per pub­lished yes­ter­day, Hind Al-Sabeeh, who is also Min­is­ter of State for Eco­nomic Af­fairs, said that the strat­egy to up­grade Kuwait’s na­tional car­rier would lead to bet­ter ser­vices and in­creased com­pet­i­tive­ness. With its re­cent pur­chase of a fleet of new air­crafts, Sabeeh fore­boded that the com­pany was at the cusp of new growth, say­ing she was “hope­ful that the air­line would be able to re­gain its lost glory.”

Mean­while, the Kuwaiti min­is­ter touched on a range of hot top­ics, in­clud­ing the coun­try’s pro­posed phil­an­thropic law, which en­com­passes civil and vol­un­tary work in a na­tion with a pen­chant for al­tru­ism, which seeks to amass funds for pub­lic ben­e­fit. The Min­is­ter of So­cial Af­fairs also pointed out that a num­ber of la­bor laws are cur­rently pend­ing, all of which will help de­sign a com­pre­hen­sive for­eign work­force pol­icy.— KUNA
