    Nizar M. Al-Adsani Chief Executive Ofcer

    Dialoguewith CEO




    I would like in the beginning of my speech to congratulate HE Deputy Premier, Minister of

    Oil Mustapha Al-Shamali on the trust which HH the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber

    Al-Sabah has placed in him to take over the responsibility of Ministry of Oil. We entreat

    Allah, the Almighty, to make him the best successor of the best ancestor, and help him to

    manage the current phase which is considered one of the hardest phases in which diligent

    attempts are exerted to re-arrange the house from inside, assess performance and allot plans

    in liaison with the ambitions of the oil sector; besides achieving the 2030 strategic goals.

    Add to this is the attempt of re-approaching the map of the overseas investments particularly

    under the state of territorial and geopolitical instability which influences negatively the

    stability of the international oil markets. Indisputably, the recent visit which a Chinese high-

    level delegation paid to the country serves this tendency, as we seek assiduously to urge the

    Chinese concerned officials to push forward the bilateral capitalistic projects which will open

    new horizons in the world of oil industry.

    As a country whose economy is mainly based on oil, we have to be keen on reinforcing our

    status through providing good investment opportunities with promising countries and opening

    new markets in Europe, Africa and countries of the near east; in addition to developing our

    oil industry in liaison with the international developments taking place in the oil industry

    particularly what is related to environment.

  • It is the pleasure of KPC News staff to extend their heartfelt gratitute to all colleagues who contributed to KPC News past issues. We will be more than happy to receive even more of your contributions and ideas which will further bolster con-structive cooperation and con-tinuous progress.
