KUWAIT, Jan 23 (KUNA) -- Aims of national human development reports are to achieve national consensus on the fundamentals of the issue and to increase transparency indicators in the country, said Kuwait's minister of commerce and industry on Monday.
Dr. Amani Bouresli, who is also the State Minister for Planning and Development, made the remark on the fringes of the first meeting of the National Human Development Report Consultative Board.
Kuwait, through the move, also hopes to establish an official reference that international organizations could benefit from, she added.
The report, which will thus far be conducted biennially, will focus on issues such as development, population, housing, the civil society and the national fabric, among others.
The report is to be conducted by the state employees, with help enlisted from the UN Development Programme (UNDP), while the local statistics office has been brought on board to provide necessary information.
The process will take around 9-11 months to complete, with its first phase being to construct a general draft, said the minister.
The second phase, which begins in March ending in August, includes the preparation of the document - with the aid of the UNDP - for the final draft to be dispatched to the UN head office in New York for revision.
This is not the first time Kuwait has embarked on such a move, as it had issued two reports in 1997 and 1999 respectively, explained Director General of the Arab Planning Institute, Bader Malallah. (end) fnk.sd KUNA 231813 Jan 12NNNN
