BMI View:

High oil prices continue to buoy the economy but contentious politics in Kuwait remain a significant drag on implementation of infrastructure plans. The government has long failed to implement planned large scale infrastructure projects especially the Kuwait Development Plan, which has really struggled to get off the ground since US$108bn of funding was announced in 2010. Year on year (y-o-y)
growth is improving in 2013, although still relatively low at 3.6%, compared with previous performance.

Construction industry value is expected to rise from US$2.6bn in 2013 to US$5.0bn by 2021.

Key developments in Kuwait’s infrastructure sector include:

- Kuwait's Public Works Minister Fadhel Safar has signed a financing deal for new infrastructure projects in the country. The financing worth US$20.5mn will be directed towards infrastructure for the first phase of a project to construct five major blocks in the Funaitees area. The first phase will entail the installation of subsidiary roads, traffic signs, street lights, and water and sewerage networks.

- The Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC) is to construct the largest oil refinery READ MORE >
