Kuwait Industry

A programme to boost oil production in Kuwait has stimulated growth in construction and petrochemicals. After hydrocarbons extraction and refining, the petrochemicals industry is the largest in Kuwait, with the bulk of production exported to Asia. Manufacturing, meanwhile, is set for continued growth as the country makes a greater push to diversify its industrial base – efforts that will be boosted by a significant influx of funds allocated to transport upgrades as part of the National Development Plan 2015-20. Local pharmaceutical companies are also poised to benefit from rising demand for health care services in the coming years, driven by high birth rates, an ageing population and sustained immigration.

This chapter contains an interview with Ahmad Al Jemaz, CEO, Kuwait Aromatics Company.
