KUWAIT CITY, May 23: The Assistant Undersecretary for Water Operations and Maintenance Affairs at Ministry of Electricity and Water Eng. Mohammad Boushahri affirmed the ministry’s keenness for transparency in all sectors in order to achieve high results in the annual transparency evaluation. He revealed that the ministry has formed a committee for this purpose, adding that the committee will hold meetings to formulate a plan for promoting the principle of equal opportunities and educating the employees about their rights and responsibilities.

Meanwhile, the ministry is renovating the steam turbines and power generators in West Doha Power and Water Distillation Station in a project worth more than KD 73 million. Sources indicated that the project is aimed to increase the efficiency and lifespan of the station, as well as to prepare it for any possible obstacles that could be encountered during the summer season.

The Ministry of Electricity and Water, which is currently studying the possibility of increasing the tariff of electricity and water consumption, is also considering minimizing the tariff of the electricity and water consumption in the industrial sector to make it equivalent to the tariff applied in the GCC countries due to the similarity of industries and living conditions of GCC nationals, reports Al-Anba daily quoting ministerial sources.

They indicated that the ministry will present this suggestion of amending the tariff to the committee formed by the Ministers Council, which consists of representatives from various governmental bodies. The sources explained that the aim is to include it in the study of subsidies provided by the State so that an appropriate tariff is applied without negatively affecting the consumer segments.
