Death of Sheikh Nasser Sabah Al Ahmed, former Kuwaiti Defence Minister, is end of an era
With the passing of Sheikh Nasser Sabah Al Ahmed Al Sabah, 72, Kuwait has lost a great leader who left a long-term vision for his country. The late leader aimed to place Kuwait on the same development path that is followed by the UAE and Saudi Arabia. In addition to its end-goal of bringing about economic diversification, this path also aimed to build a sustainable development model that would ensure a decent life for citizens, especially in the post-oil era.
Sheikh Nasser was often hailed as the mastermind of the Kuwait Vision 2035. There is a reason for that. He carried unlimited ambitions to place his country among the region’s most economically and commercially advanced countries by taking advantage of Kuwait’s distinctive geographical location and direct links with the regional main markets, thus giving the country the opportunity to transform its economy into a more a dynamic one.
