As with most countries in the Middle East, Kuwait holds 10% of the world’s oil reserves although upon first inspection of the country this wealth is not apparent.
Kuwait is rebuilding and developing at a slow rate and has a number of key projects under way and in the pipeline. City of Silk, Burj Mubarak, Al Khiran City, Al Hamba Tower are all at either construction or development stage with many more on the drawing board.
Living & working in Kuwait is similar to the rest of the Middle East while it is more conservative than most countries in the region there is still an established expatriate community and work force.
Tax free salaries, a fantastic climate (although typically Kuwait is one of the hottest countries during the summer), longevity of employment opportunity makes Kuwait an excellent option for those looking to plan a long term career in the Middle East.
