The government is expected to present its work program to the National Assembly next week, noting that the ministers are close to finalizing their goals and final visions for the next stage under the title of reviving Kuwait.

In its weekly meeting chaired by His Highness Sheikh Ahmed Nawaf Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah, the Cabinet stressed the need for ministries and government agencies to address the Audit Bureau’s observations and recommendations to improve the level of government performance.

The sources indicated that “there is a directive for the ministers to revive the urgent priorities included in Kuwait’s Vision 2035,” noting that “the top of the expected priorities in the government’s work program is to reduce the role of the government sector in the development process, provided that this is matched by a greater expansion in the role of the private sector, within the limits that contribute to strengthening its role in implementing the required development plan, and increasing its ability to participate vitally in absorbing the various educational outputs by employing, instead of directing its flow in one direction, which is government institutions.”

The sources indicated that “the government is expected to focus in its next work program on electronic work and digitization in all transactions related to ministries and government institutions, in order to facilitate the fulfillment of citizens’ requirements.”

As part of the economic reform steps, the Council of Ministers approved a draft decree aimed at allowing the Ministry of Electricity and Water to purchase electric power and water from several sources, not just renewable energy, allowing the private sector to contribute to providing electricity and water and easing financial burdens on the state, pursuant to the private sector’s participation in projects.

The Council assigned the Public Authority for Roads and Land Transport to complete its efforts regarding the implementation of the railway track project, and also assigned the Ministry of Health to coordinate with the Ministry of Public Works and the Directorate-General of Civil Aviation to develop all its requirements regarding the establishment of a medical and preventive center and a public health laboratory in the buildings of Kuwait International Airport to confront emergency and exceptional health crises and deal with them with the required efficiency, according to the highest standards followed in this regard.
