The Kuwaiti government is planning to create an appropriate environment to attract foreign investments, including, encouraging participation between foreign and local companies.
The government is encouraging private companies to invest in farm projects, abroad.
Government assistance in agriculture is mainly provided through domestic support, such as subsidies and low-cost credits to domestic producers.
Lack of domestic production, due to unfavourable conditions
The country has a total arable land of about 10600 hectors, which is about 0.6% of the total land area. This domestic production capacity is not enough to cater to the growing demand for fruits and vegetables. Kuwait is the second most populated country in the GCC region, with the average population growth rate of 3.5%. The country has low domestic production capabilities for fruits and vegetables, as the soil in the region is low in organic content, low-nutrient holding abilities, and poor moisture retaining capacity. The natural water resources required for irrigation are minimal, with most of the water used being from desalination plants, which consume a lot of electricity; domestic farmers are not able to bear the costs, as there are no subsidies for electricity. Thus, the harsh climatic conditions, and vulnerable water and soil resources are the major constraints faced by the agriculture sector in Kuwait; hence, the country is mostly dependent on import of fruits and vegetables.
Investing in farm land abroad; a government initiative
The government of Kuwait is encouraging agricultural companies to invest in foreign countries that have a comparative advantage in producing certain crops and import their products back into Kuwait. The crops targeted by this initiative include wheat, rice, barley, yellow corn, soybeans, and green forage. The Kuwaiti government is providing financial incentives to encourage investors in the country to take part in this food security initiative and invest overseas.
