KUWAIT, Oct 18 (KUNA) -- Kuwait's top lawmaker Marzouq Al-Ghanim said on Monday that the local sports scene needs "tangible and practical" action on the ground to take off, subsequently boding well for his compatriot athletes.
"We need to transform plans and suggestions into palpable realities," Al-Ghanim said amid parliament-hosted talks over efforts to propel the Kuwaiti sports sector to greater levels, in which a bevy of athletes were in attendance.
Countries with vibrant sports scenes often rely on "meticulous plans" to keep the sector afloat, added the chief lawmaker, saying that similar procedures would "save" Kuwait's sports sector.
He went on to express confidence in the abilities of athletes and sports officials, whom he said were more than capable of transforming the industry. (end)
