Kuwait is keen on taking part in regional economic forums especially those focusing on the subject of investment, said a Kuwaiti official here in a statement to KUNA on Tuesday.
Speaking to KUNA on the sidelines of an economic forum started here yesterday and slated to go on for three days, Qais Al-Bader, assistant undersecretary for administrative and financial affairs at the office of the state minister for National Assembly and Cabinet affairs, said Kuwait's participation in this forum was in part to get a closer look at the experiences of some Arab countries regarding the subject of investment.
Al-Bader heads the Kuwaiti delegation to the forum which is organized by the Arab organization for administrative development, itself affiliated with the Arab League.
Among topics being thrashed at this forum, he said, are defining features of investment in the Arab world, the impact capital has on investment, privatization and its ramifications, rules governing contracts, the concept of national security in connection with national economy, and the relationship between contracts and court rulings.
Taking part in the forum on investment are personnel working in the legal departments in Arab ministries of trade and commerce and investment. Representatives from the Arab private sectors, courts, chambers of commerce and lawyers' unions also are participating in the forum.
