A guide to Kuwait

The tiny Arab state of Kuwait, on The GULF, has one of the most comprehensive welfare systems in the world. Education and health care are free to all nationals; food, water, electricity and transport are subsidised.

The country, of only 17818 sq km (6879 sq miles), consists of the city of Kuwait at the southern entrance of Kuwait Bay and a small wedge of undulating desert between Iraq and Saudi Arabia.  Oil was found in 1938 and Kuwait's reserves of 90,000 million barrels are the third largest in the world.

It’s growing range of industries; mostly oil related, are highly dependent on foreign technicians and imported skills. Of the almost 2 million people, nearly 60 per cent are immigrants, who provide 75 per cent of the work force but do not share in the state's distribution of oil wealth. Mbr>It is an arid hot land in summer, with monthly mean temperatures of up to 45C (113F); winters are cool and sometimes there is frost. Little rain falls and Kuwait has the world's largest saltwater distillation plants; they produced 545 million litres (120 million gallons) a day in 1984.
