Kuwait has pledged along with its GCC neighbours to cut crude production by 4.6% from current levels as part of the OPEC (and non-OPEC) deal to restrict production and underpin oil prices. Despite our scepticism about the long-term success of the deal, we expect these four countries to follow through and cut production by the full amount - some 131K b/d in Kuwait's case. But a failure of others to follow will likely see output pick up in H2.

Parliamentary election results saw opposition groups - who chiefly campaigned on a platform of anti-austerity - win half of the contested seats, reinforcing our view that the government will have to proceed slowly with the pace of reform. We have left our non-oil GDP forecasts unchanged, which results in GDP rising by just 0.3% in 2017 - weakened by the oil output cuts - after an estimated 3.5% in 2016.
