Kuwaiti municipal official underscores "major transition" set by launched website
A Gulf municipal website, launched Tuesday, would prove instrumental to unifying Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) municipal work, Deputy Director General of Kuwait's Municipality Abdullah Assad Amadi said.
 
In comments to KUNA after heading a Kuwaiti delegation to the ninth Gulf Municipal Works Conference, Amadi said that the website would facilitate municipal work, giving Gulf citizens easier access to municipal services.
 
The website provides a slew of pivotal studies on municipal affairs, in addition to a comprehensive database of Gulf municipal work, Amadi noted.
 
Moreover, Amadi said that the website also serves as a forum for which to exchange municipal information amongst GCC nations.
 
Kuwait's municipality values its participation in the conference, given the magnitude of the event, which is a testament to the unity of Gulf nations, he added.
 
The Deputy Director General of Kuwait's municipality underscored the importance of municipal work to sustained development, saying that a planned GCC municipal prize is in the works, as an incentive for Gulf nations to work towards more progress.
 
The three-day conference, which kicked off Tuesday, witnessed the launch of a website on Gulf municipal information.
 
Amadi, along with a number of Kuwaiti municipal officials, made up Kuwait's delegation to the conference.
