The Public Authority for Sports is working on developing a new cooperation strategy between the public and private sectors to boost the sports field in Kuwait, said the representative of His Highness the Amir Sheikh Nawaf Al-Ahmad Al- Jaber Al-Sabah, Abdulrahman Al-Mutairi. The new strategy aims to develop Kuwait’s sports sector regionally and internationally, Al-Mutairi, also Minister of Information and Culture and Minister of State for Youth, said during his visit to male athletes and Kuwaiti women participating in the Islamic Solidarity Games, held Wednesday in the city of Konya in Turkey.

The strategy, announced in November 2021, includes the construction of a sports city, six stadiums and the organization of 45 regional, intercontinental and international tournaments. Last night, the minister honored Kuwaiti pole vaulter Majid Al-Zaid for receiving the bronze medal of the competition, as well as Kuwaiti team leader Sheikh Jaber Thamer Al-Sabah and Kuwaiti mission manager Fatma Hayat. There are 60 Kuwaiti athletes taking part in the ten-match tournament, including athletics, swimming, judo, karate, taekwondo, archery, shooting, cycling and table tennis. The tournament runs until August 18, with the participation of around 6,000 athletes from 56 countries.(KUNA)
