Kuwait Shipping Report Q1 2016

Kuwait Shipping Report Q1 2016

BMI View: We expect continued growth through Kuwait's major ports. Although the economy facessignificant challenges from the dramatic fall in the price of oil through the closing months of 2014 - Kuwaitis reliant on oil revenues - we believe that growth will hold up, thanks to considerable reserves and acommitment to a five-year plan in infrastructure investment. This will maintain growth in gross tonnagevolumes through the country's ports. In terms of container demand, we expect that household spending inKuwait will continue to grow, and that the country's container-handling facilities will see steady ifunspectacular growth over the next several years. That said, the opening of the new Mubarak al-Kabirfacility, now expected to happen in 2016, will boost volumes in the country.
