Kuwaiti Society

Kuwaiti Society Last updated on Tuesday 20th April 2010

It is inevitable in a country like Kuwait, which has grown from relative poverty to great wealth in a very short time, that clashes should occur between the old and the new. It cannot be emphasized too strongly that the most important part of Kuwaiti society remains the family, and here the old values are retained and cherished.

The traditional virtues of hospitality, courtesy and respect must not be lost in a head-long rush to what some may term "modernization". Nowadays in Kuwait it is generally felt that not enough attention has been paid to the country's heritage, and so a number of government projects have sought to reverse this trend.
