Kuwait's Path to Renewable Energy and Economic Diversification

“With a population of 4.5 million, Kuwait boasts the third-largest domestic market within the Arabian Gulf region. Home to the world’s sixth-largest proven oil reserves, Kuwait remains among the top ten wealthiest nations globally in terms of per capita income, despite fluctuations in oil prices. However, the country is committed to diversifying its economy and reducing reliance on oil revenues. While investing in the modernization of its major refineries and associated infrastructure, Kuwait completed the Al-Zour refinery project with SINOPEC from October 2015 to December 2019, marking one of the largest single construction projects in history!

Kuwait aims to secure approximately 15% of its electricity from renewable energy sources by 2030. With numerous infrastructure projects in the pipeline or nearing completion, including the planned city of Madinat al-Hareer (City of Silk) for 700,000 residents, there are vast opportunities for cooperation and collaboration in Kuwait. However, the planning and execution of such projects do not occur in a cultural vacuum but are influenced by specific culturally ingrained thought and behavior patterns. Recognizing and understanding these patterns are essential for effective and seamless cooperation and communication.

Cross-cultural training, coaching, and learning solutions play a crucial role in fostering mutual understanding and developing appropriate strategies for successful collaboration. Connect with us to benefit from our hands-on intercultural insights, enabling you to seize opportunities in Kuwait and foster successful partnerships in this thriving market.
