KUWAIT: More than 400 local development projects will be launched on Kuwait’s Saji Island, the acting director general of the National Fund for Small and Medium Enterprise Development has said.
Adel Al-Hasawi told Kuwait News Agency that the artificial island, located south of Jaber Causeway, is versatile and will be divided into four areas: Al-Bandera, Al-Safar, the Marina and the Service Area.
The Marina will allocate water taxis to transport visitors to and from the island from the city of Salmiya, as well as organize tours. The Service Area will include a parking lot, gas station and buses to facilitate movement.
Al-Hasawi said that the national fund, which is overseeing the project, is looking to attract a variety of businesses to the island, which will feature food trucks, booths, exhibition areas and a large viewing screen.
The announcement came after Kuwait Interior Minister Sheikh Talal Khaled Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah led an inspection tour of the site.
