    Faisal Jaber Al-Ahmad Al-SabahDeputy Managing Director, Relations & IT

    I would like to congratulate you on the advent of the holy month of

    Ramadan; in addition to dispatching cables of congratulations to HH the

    Amir and HH Crown Prince, imploring Allah, the Almighty, to protect

    our beloved Kuwait from any misfortune.

    We look forward to resuming our hard work during the holy month of

    Ramadan hoping this holy month to bolster the spirit of teamwork which

    requires adopting self-denial principle that is considered a positive step

    towards spiritual integration.

    The spirit of devotion at work makes us feel the humbleness of our effort

    compared to our great goals which are aimed to develop the Kuwaiti

    oil industry and underpin its international status in the various oil

    fields particularly refining industry. You might feel the significance of

    integration in performance which is achieved by the spirit of teamwork.

    This is the spirit which we have inherited from forefathers and ancestors

    who exerted tremendous efforts to reach the current high status which

    the State of Kuwait has occupied.

    As the spirit of teamwork is the resource of our power, we should preferably

    utilize this holy month to work hard and support communication among

    each other to surmount the difficulties which we confront and fulfill the

    hopes and ambitions of our nation.
