Kuwait’s Mubarak Al-Kabeer Port set to transform dreams into reality

The project, poised to be one of the largest in the Middle East, targets trade with Central and East Asia, aiming to become a key link in the revival of the Silk Road.

  • Kuwait’s Mubarak Al-Kabeer Port is envisioned to be a major driver of the national economy in the coming years. The project has the potential to attract significant foreign investment while maximizing local investments.

Dr. Noura Al-Mashaan, Minister of Public Works and Minister of State for Housing Affairs, headed a government delegation on a recent inspection tour of critical infrastructure sites, such as the Mubarak Al-Kabeer Port on Boubyan Island. The Kuwaiti delegation was accompanied by a team of Chinese government experts and engineers specializing in large-scale development projects.

This visit marks a significant step forward in the implementation of the Mubarak Al-Kabeer Port project, a cornerstone of the strategic partnership established during His Highness the Amir Sheikh Meshal Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah’s visit to China last September.

The discussions between minister Al-Mashaan and the Chinese delegation focused on fostering technical and economic collaboration, particularly regarding large-scale projects in Kuwait.

Technical discussions centered on strengthening ties in construction and project implementation. Proposals were exchanged to realize the vision of the Kuwaiti leadership for this project, considered a pillar of the nation’s development and economic aspirations.

The week-long visit included field tours of Mubarak Al-Kabeer Port, alongside Doha Port and Shu’aib Port. The focus on Mubarak Al-Kabeer Port underscores its paramount importance within Kuwait’s development strategy. This mega-project is envisioned to be a major driver of the national economy in the coming years.

Mubarak Al-Kabeer Port, poised to be one of the largest in the Middle East, targets trade with Central and East Asia, aiming to become a key link in the revival of the Silk Road. The project also has the potential to attract significant foreign investment while maximizing local investments.

Furthermore, the port’s development is expected to enhance Kuwait’s infrastructure, stimulate the growth of the northern region, and generate substantial job opportunities for Kuwaiti youth. The project extends beyond the port itself, with plans to revitalize Boubyan Island as a tourist destination.”
