Macro Poverty Outlook for Kuwait (Inglês)

GDP growth has recovered in line with oil sector developments, and external and fiscal balances improved amidst higher energy prices in 2017-18. A loose fiscal stance and rising public infrastructure spending will buttress growth in the medium term. Continued volatility in oil prices underscores the need to accelerate key fiscal reforms. The slow pace of structural reforms needed to diversify away from hydrocarbons and support private sector activity is a key challenge.
