about kuwait.

The State of Kuwait is located along the northern edge of Eastern Arabia, at the tip of the Persian Gulf. As of 2017, the country has a population of 4.2 million people, of which 1.3 million are Kuwaitis, and 2.9 million are expatriates. Kuwait’s expatriate workforce accounts for approximately 70% of the population.

Kuwait is a high-income economy, backed by the world’s sixth largest oil reserves. The Kuwaiti dinar is one of the highest valued currencies in the world, and according to the World Bank, the country has the fourth highest per capita income in the world.


Kuwait has a largely petroleum-based economy, supplemented by the financial services sector. Oil and gas account for nearly 60% of GDP, and 94% of export revenues. Kuwaiti officials plan to increase oil production to 4 million barrels per day by 2020.

The country has one of the oldest and most financially stable economic systems in the Middle East, with a well-developed banking system and stock exchange that dates back over 50 years. The country’s wealth-management industry stands out in comparison to that of its GCC neighbours, with Kuwaiti investment companies administering more assets than those of any other country in the region, save for Saudi Arabia.

Other notable non-oil industry sectors include business services, manufacturing, retail trade, financial institutions, construction, transport, and real estate, plus cement and construction material production, and water desalination.

recent reforms.

The Kuwaiti Government is trying to modernise the structure of the country’s economy, and as such, Kuwait benefits from high levels of openness to global commerce and good monetary stability.

While high revenues delayed the need for privatisation and other structural reforms for many years, the collapse of oil prices in 2015 encouraged a turn towards economic diversification, attempts to attract foreign capital, and efforts to boost private sector participation in the economy. The Government’s launch of ‘Kuwait Vision 2035’ involves approaches that would, if implemented, bring about new job opportunities and significant reforms in public finance.


Close to 80% of the local Kuwaiti workforce is concentrated in government departments and public institutions, as opposed to the private sector. The vast majority of expatriate workers are employed in the private sector, in production, sales, and services jobs.

For skilled professionals, opportunities exist in the accountancy, banking and finance, VAT and tax, construction and real estate, manufacturing, engineering, and supply chain, HR, technology and digital, sales and marketing, and legal sectors.


Kuwaitisation refers to the national policy in Kuwait to encourage employment of Kuwaiti nationals in the private sector. The Kuwaiti government has enacted policies to promote Kuwaitisation, including quotes for private sector firms. These policies are considered key to sustaining economic growth and employment in the country.
