 On 22nd May 2017, we were honored to host an event celebrating Kuwait’s success at JW Marriott Kuwait City. Held under the patronage of His Excellency Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah Al-Mubarak Al-Sabah, Minister of State for Cabinet Affairs of Kuwait and Acting Minister of Information, the event honored the top listed and private businesses that have made an impact within the Gulf country. Forbes Middle East also recognized the work of impactful and successful women in Kuwait, who have left an indelible mark on the economy through their work.


One of the largest oil exporters in the world, Kuwait is currently in the process of reinventing itself as it envisions an ambitious future for itself. A future that is not dependent on oil but on its biggest wealth – its people and more importantly its youth. With the launch of New Kuwait, the Gulf country is aiming to transform its future through a massive economic diversification drive that could help it emerge as an impactful global player.
