BMI View: We are looking for positive growth across the Kuwaiti freight transport sector in 2016 as thesmall Gulf country looks to recover from a significant fall in trade, driven by the global collapse of oilprices in 2014. The overall macroeconomic outlook remains bleak, but high levels of capital and foreignreserves, coupled with a wealthy population means that spending on both capital goods -(also driving bulkand project volumes) and consumer goods should continue supporting the freight transport sector ingeneral. The two largest national ports will see their throughput tonnage increase in 2016 as Kuwaitremains heavily reliant on manufactured goods and agricultural imports, whilst being one of the largest oilexporters of the world.

Key Updates And Forecasts

- Economic recovery prospects will begin modestly in 2016 after the collapse in the price of oil severelydeteriorated the macroeconomic fundamentals of the country in 2014 and 2015.
