The eighth Forum for the Future, opening Tuesday in Kuwait, requires constructive collaboration from civil society and the private and public sectors, Kuwait’s foreign ministry undersecretary said.

Recommendations for reform

They produced 66 recommendations on how to carry out social, political and economic reforms,” he said, quoted by Kuwait News Agency (Kuna).

There were also three “very important” national workshops that were held on Oman, Egypt and Tunisia, he said.

The joint presidency adopted a transparent approach in dealing with all issues of the Forum and there have been a roadmap and a strategy between all components of the Forum, held amidst sensitive circumstances in the region, the official said.

“The joint presidency is keen on having a final communique consisting of ideas that are both in harmony with the reality we live today and the hopes we aspire to achieve in future and a reflection of the spirit of international resolutions,” he said.
