TOURISM AND RECREATION IN KUWAIT

Auther : By: Dr. Ebeid Sourour

          Tourism and recreation have become one of the important and influential sectors in most of the modern economies.  This sector has been accepted as one of the alternative sources of national income, employment and foreign exchange.

          The State of Kuwait has many potentialities in tourism and recreation and exploitation of these leads to more diversification of the economy, besides augmenting its contribution to the GDP.  Kuwait being an import oriented economy requires hard currencies (foreign exchange) to meet the import cost as well as to maintain stability in the internal market.  To compensate the revenue fall stemmed from fluctuations in the oil price, where the agriculture, fisheries and industrial sectors are too immune and inelastic, the only alternative solution is the regeneration of the touristic industry which would serve as a shock absorber in various phases of trade cycles of the oil based economy.  Contemplating from this perspective, the study of tourism and recreation comes to the surface.  The study envisages the characteristics of tourism and recreation, the economic and social importance for the society, the physical and human endowments as well as the touristic pattern and plan for promoting and sustaining tourism in the country.

          The study summarizes many recommendations; the necessity of establishing an authority or a council for tourism, linking the planning of tourism development with the comprehensive planning for economic and social development in Kuwait and to encourage the investors to develop new touristic and recreation projects.
