Limak Co. to complete Kuwait Airport project in 4 years
Kuwait: Minister of Social Affairs and Labor and Minister of State for Planning and Development Affairs Hind Al-Sabeeh said Tuesday the Turkish Limak Construction Co. undertook to complete the expansion of Kuwait International Airport (KWI) in four years instead of six.
The construction company made the commitment to finalize the project two years ahead of schedule based on the cooperation shown by the Kuwaiti authorities, notably the Supreme Council for Planning and Development (SCPD), she said.
Al-Sabeeh made the comments after her talks with Turkish Minister of Development Lutfi Elvan, now on a visit to Kuwait, and the delegation accompanying him.
She affirmed that the Kuwaiti leadership, represented by His Highness the Amir, and the SCPD attach great importance to this mega project.
"The project is of strategic importance, this is why all competent authorities worked together to facilitate its implementation," she said, noting that the construction company was satisfied with the procedures adopted in the recent period.
On her talks with Elvan and his party, the minister said they discussed the bilateral ties and cooperation in various fields.
She welcomed the Turkish companies willing to tap into the promising investment opportunities in Kuwait, adding that Kuwait's five-year development offers great opportunities for investors from friendly countries, notably Turkey.
On his part, Elvan expressed gratitude to Kuwait for its support to legitimacy in Turkey in the wake of the foiled coup.
He also commended Kuwait for awarding the contract of the airport project to Limak, noting that the airport will be able to handle more than 25 million passengers a year after the completion of its expansion.
