Here’s an interesting read by Jason Saltzman written on CNN. He was sent to Kuwait to promote entrepreneurship. He mentioned he had no idea what to expect or if people will even listen to him as he has never visited Kuwait before. He was actually impressed by a lot of things, here’s a paragraph from the article.
“Truth be told, there were reasons to be optimistic from the minute I landed, despite the hurdles. The youth of Kuwait are educated, discerning and innovative. They come up with awesome ideas, and have a tech infrastructure that rivals many other Western countries. Plus, Kuwait is affluent, so, in theory, there is money to fund some of these projects.”
He goes through his entire experience when visiting Kuwait which is worth reading. I met Jason when he was in Kuwait, he’s a very down to earth guy that loves helping people out with advice. Because the visit was a success the State Department has plans for him to visit Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Iraq.
