Navigating New Waters: "The Kuwaiti Blue Economy and its Potential Obstacles" by Dr. Mohamed Alqattan

We're excited to share that Dr. Mohamed Alqattan, Assistant Vice President of Research and External Relations at American International University (AIU), has published a groundbreaking article, "The Kuwaiti Blue Economy and its Potential Obstacles" in the world-renowned journal, Heliyon. This insightful piece explores Kuwait's economic pivot from its traditional oil-centric base towards the blue economy, which focuses on the sustainable use of ocean resources.

Dr. Alqattan’s article delves into the blue economy's viability as an alternative economic backbone for Kuwait, emphasizing the government's dedication alongside the inherent challenges such as corruption, internal political conflicts, and maritime security concerns. Through his meticulous research, including a comprehensive review of existing literature and interviews with experts, Dr. Alqattan paints a realistic picture of what lies ahead for Kuwait. His findings suggest that while the blue economy can complement the oil sector, it is unlikely to replace it completely. Instead, he advocates for strategic integration to boost Kuwait’s economic diversification and sustainability.
