Thursday, January 23, 2020

The Ministry of Public Works (MPW) announced that 26.9 percent of Kuwait International Airport’s Terminal 2 (T2) project has been completed. This came in a statement made in a field visit by MPW undersecretary Ismael Al-Failakawi, Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Planning and Development Dr Khaled Mahdi and other officials, during which a presentation was made on the progress of work on the project.

Mahdi explained that the project is a substantial upgrade of infrastructure and air transport as well as a major step towards turning Kuwait into a regional commercial hub by attracting more visitors. He said the project is scheduled to be concluded by 2022 at a total cost of KD 1.312 billion, adding 75 percent of the eight obstacles the project had been facing were overcome. Mahdi also noted that 6,900 people (including 168 Kuwaitis) were working on the project

Looks like Kuwait is really serious about expansion for tourism purposes... and ''attracting more visitors''.
So far, a would-be tourist can enjoy various udupi restaurants, walk in the Avenues mall, enjoy seaside in Salmiya (?), visit the Kuwait Towers, watch bachelors/ unwanted expats get kicked out and finally board the return flight back to wherever they came from.
Am I missing any tourist special item?
