Kuwait is one of the richest countries in the world in terms of gross domestic product per capita. To minimize its dependency on oil, Kuwait plans to fundamentally rebuild its economic structure. Having known since drilling began that an oil-based economy is not sustainable, Kuwait created the oldest and now one of the biggest sovereign wealth funds, worth approximately 600 billion US dollars today. The ultimate goal is to become a global trading and financial center by 2035.
