Kuwait Fund started in the year 2004 a new approach to support development in Kuwait through the financing of national program with strategic significance. One leading program in this context is the upgrading of national human resources in response to private sector needs.
The Fund has started implementation of this program in the engineering specializations, with a view to provide newly graduate Kuwaiti engineers and Architects with the skills and knowledge needed for employment in the private sector. Another objective of the program is to create operational links between international and Kuwaiti companies, to assist in the technical and managerial development of the latter. The Kuwait Fund would rely on its strong established relationship, with international companies to create suitable environment for forming partnership between international companies and the Kuwaiti firms by way of utilizing this training program as a catalyst.
