KUWAIT CITY, July 22, (KUNA): The launch of “Kuwait Talent Bank” is considered a huge stride taken toward meeting the aspirations of youth and achieving their needs in a practical and realistic approach, a Kuwaiti Minister stressed Monday.
In a press conference announcing the launch of the website, Minister of Information and Minister of State for Youth Affairs Sheikh Salman Sabah Al-Salem Al-Homoud Al-Sabah said that the website comes as a translation of His Highness the Amir of Kuwait’s desire to embrace the youth’s talents and potentials that would lead to the development the country.
The website was the fruit of discussions made at the National Youth Project and backed by Undersecretary at the Civil Service Commission (CSC) Mohammed Al-Roumi, Advisor at Amiri Diwan Dr. Yousif Al-Ibrahim and Undersecretary at the Youth Affairs Ministry Dr. Fawaz Al-Husinan.
The Minister thanked those who are behind the website for their tremendous efforts in bringing such a huge potential to life.
Al-Roumi, on his part, said that the website would provide new concepts in societal collaborations that would help small businesses to stand on their feet; hence, achieving everlasting economic development.
Kuwait Talent Bank is established to bring together all the different local talents under one umbrella and set up new projects; thus, creating many new job opportunities in local markets, Al-Roumi noted.
The Civil Service Commission data base will be connected directly with that of the Kuwait Talent Bank, Al-Roumi explained. This move will enable observers to link the right talent with the appropriate work market.

Meanwhile, Al-Ibrahim noted that the Amiri Diwan should supervise this website and seek to develop it to find its proper place a year from now.
The idea of creating this website sprung from the youth to their fellow peers. Therefore, Al-Ibrahim encouraged those who have the right qualifications to register on the website, noting that the website has seen the registration of 100 male and female applicants as of yet.
Al-Husinan, meanwhile, stressed that creating such a website shows country’s ability to embrace the youth and what they could provide for their communities.
“It’s a pioneering project,” he described. “It enables the youth to prove themselves as productive and vital members in the development of their communities and their country.” The key ingredient for the success of such project depends on the youth perseverance and constructive participation through the National Youth Project, he stressed.
