The event was also attended by Ooredoo General Manager and CEO Mohammed Bin Abdullah Al-Thani and a number of Ooredoo’s management members.
Commenting on the event, Al-Thani said: “We are proud to be taking part in a national project as big as this one. We always look forward to take part in projects that participate in preserving the culture and heritage of our countries. This stems from our deep-rooted belief in giving back to the community. We hope that the village will be at the forefront of touristic destinations for all visitors to Kuwait.” Ooredoo is a main sponsor for the village.
The village this year underwent a major expansion, and now includes a lake surrounded by restaurants and cafes, as well as shops and exhibition booths for all GCC countries, which display the culture and art of each country. It also includes a big space designed for children, a car drifting rink, and a football field.
The village hosts weekly entertainment programs that include musical performances, games and competitions. Located in Al-Salmi, the village is close to camping sites which are frequented by residents of Kuwait during this season where the weather is cool and suitable for outdoor activities.
