Around 79 percent of this year’s development plan was completed, Minister of Social Affairs and Labor Hind Al-Sabeeh said Sunday, citing a 10 percent increase from last year.

Speaking to the press, Al-Sabeeh, who is also Minister of State for Economic Affairs, said that most projects included in the development plan that ended on March 31, are pending, “which is progress towards completion.”

Moreover, she spoke of the government’s resolve to eliminate all hurdles that could impede these projects.

Al-Sabeeh revealed that a grand metro rail project in the works belongs to the Public Private Partnership Authority (PPP), which is considering handing it over to a Kuwaiti investor.

On a special bonus pay that the government has introduced to encourage young Kuwaitis to join the private sector, Al-Sabeeh said the monetary sum is still intact.
