Kuwaiti Minister of Information and Minister of State for Youth Affairs Sheikh Salman Sabah Al-Salem Al-Humoud Al-Sabah said Tuesday the State of Kuwait had made significant jumps in the Global Youth Development Index (YDI) over the last three years.
Speaking at an ordinary National Assembly session, the minister said Kuwait had jumped to the 56th spot in 2016 from the 110th in the previous report issued in 2013.
The minister was responding to a parliamentary request for setting up an ad hoc committee for improving the business environment. "The State has made much headway in the establishment of the National Fund for Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises just out of its care and attention to young people," he added. He pointed out that the committee would be certainly in the interest of everyone, mainly young people.
