Doc­u­ment says Kuwait lacks tax sys­tem to help face chal­lenges

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL - By A Saleh KUWAIT: In­fra­struc­ture ren­o­va­tion

A doc­u­ment is­sued by the Fi­nance Min­istry re­vealed that Kuwait does not en­joy a mod­ern tax­ing sys­tem that en­ables it to face chal­lenges and achieve the de­sired goals in the de­vel­op­ment plan. It in­sisted on mak­ing tan­gi­ble changes in the growth rates in the gen­eral rev­enues’ struc­ture and in­crease non-oil rev­enues, be­sides up­grad­ing the sys­tems that link be­tween state de­part­ments so they can work to boost in­te­gra­tion. Fur­ther­more, the doc­u­ment said that the min­istry com­pleted a pro­posed ten­der in re­gards to the de­vel­op­ment of sys­tems and tax man­age­ment, adding that the ten­der is be­ing pre­sented to con­cerned author­i­ties.

As­sis­tant Un­der­sec­re­tary for San­i­tary En­gi­neer­ing Sec­tor at the Min­istry of Pub­lic Works (MPW) Ab­del­mohsen Al-Enezi said that the project of ren­o­vat­ing in­fra­struc­tures in Rigga and Hadiya has been com­pleted. He added that the project be­gan in May 2015 and in­cluded im­prov­ing the sewer and rain wa­ter drainage net­works, and in­creas­ing their ca­pac­ity to up to 400 cu­bic me­ters of triple-treated wa­ter. A co­or­di­na­tion was es­tab­lished with the Pub­lic Author­ity for Agri­cul­tural Af­fairs and Fish Re­sources (PAAAFR) to use the treated wa­ter in Ab­daly and nat­u­ral re­serves.
