KUWAIT: Kuwait Municipality’s Acting Director General Ahmad Al-Manfouhi announced the completion of a report that includes the locations where new labor cities are planned to be built in Kuwait.

The report, which will be sent to the cabinet soon, specifies six locations to build residential areas for laborers in Subbiya, Mutlaa, south of Jahra, south of Sabah Al-Ahmad City and south of Khairan City. The projects have a total capacity of 220,000 laborers, Manfouhi added

The cities will have residential compounds with high environmental and service standards, in addition to health and commercial services, sports facilities, restaurants and cafés, Manfouhi said.

Furthermore, the official said that the lack of suitable residential units led to the creation of unorganized residential compounds, which in made residential areas “unsuitable for families due to the spread of negative phenomena that are hard to control.” – Al-Anbaa
