KUWAIT: Minister of Finance Dr Nayef Al-Hajraf yesterday inaugurated Nuwaiseeb customs port as the first of its kind in 2019, said Customs General Department’s Director General Jamal Al-Jalawi. Customs excelled in development and improved on the movement of goods in and outside Kuwait, he said during a launching ceremony. He said his agency is eager to put in place a strategy aiming at overhauling the customs system by means of revamping the business environment and streamlining customs procedures.
