KUWAIT, March 5 (KUNA) — National Assembly Speaker Marzouq Al-Ghanim on Saturday headed a meeting of the parliamentary committee on financial and economic affairs, with several MPs, ministers and officials attending.
The meeting, which was attended by Minister of Electricity and Water Ahmad Al-Jassar, focused on issues and matters pertinent to the current economic situation in the country, and how to redress the State’s budget deficit in light of the uncontrollable decline in global oil prices.
