As Kuwait puts measures in place to transform itself into a world-class financial and commercial centre, there are opportunities for the private sector to grab a slice of the action. New laws on foreign investment and public-private partnerships have proved popular with investors. Other developments include opening the stock market to non-Kuwaitis, the entry of foreign firms into key sectors and the promotion of its Vision 2035, a seven pillar programme that aims to secure the future through economic sustainability.
