Meanwhile, KPC, on its part, spares no effort to harness all itscapabilities to develop the real wealth of the country as representedby its manpower element.As we talk about manpower, I cannot forget underlining the greatdeal of concern and unlimited support the country provides for its
sons. This support ows from the vision of HH the Amir SheikhSabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah and his keenness on promotingand developing his sons in all elds as he believes that they are the
principal pillar of developing our beloved Kuwait.
