I attended the Young Arab Leaders (YAL) Kuwait’s Chapter get together and it was an interesting gathering with good group of people. The meeting was headed by the Chapter’s head Maha Al-Ghunaim and great discussion ensued.
Someone mentioned how Qatar was advertising that Kuwait was the past, Dubai the present and Qatar the future of the region. So how do we put Kuwait back on the map? It was pointed out that Kuwait breads industry leaders such as Zain (now that they are moving out!), NBK, Agility, Al Shaya group to name few. Kuwait’s private sector is its greatest asset. Only if the government realized that!
