KUWAIT: The organizers of the Kuwait Investment Forum held a press conference yesterday to announce the launch of the 4th Kuwait Investment Forum, which will be held on Feb 18 and 19, 2017. The forum this year is titled ‘Investing in Kuwait – Available and Lost Opportunities’. It will be held under the auspices of the Minister of Finance Anas Al-Saleh, and various ministers and specialists from the investment field from both the public and private sectors will be participating. In addition, MPs and directors of investment companies and banks will also attend this event.

This forum will discuss various issues that are interesting for investors in general and tools that encourage investments, in addition to reviewing the ways of providing services for companies and other investment institutions in Kuwait, including the legal aspect of encouraging investments.

Economic obstacles and the ways of eliminating it for the investors are the main topics of this forum. “We will discuss vital investment issues including the achievements and challenges of small and medium enterprises, the government’s role in supporting and sponsoring small enterprises, the state’s vision for the future, national view of the economy during the changes happening and a general view of the economy in Kuwait,” stressed Madi Al-Khamis, CEO of Madi Media Group during the press conference.

The forum will also include workshops. “We will hold seminars and workshops to give an opportunity to investors to discuss their concerns with officials in order to reach positive results and reach solutions to the obstacles they are facing. A group of analysts and academic experts in the economic and development fields will give advice during these workshops,” he added.
“The main goal of the Kuwait Investment Forum is to provide an attractive environment in Kuwait during both the present and future phases, especially that local investment is limited only to the stock exchange. This is impeding the sustainable development process of turning Kuwait into a financial center,” concluded Khamis.
