February 16, 2016, 8:35 am

 Minister of State for Cabinet Affairs and Acting Minister of Electricity and Water Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah Al-Mubarak Al-Sabah emphasized Monday the importance of being dedicated and honest during work for the benefit of the country under the wise political leadership.

Sheikh Mohammad made his remarks to reporters on the sidelines of a ceremony hosted by Kuwait Credit Bank marking the debut of "KD 70.000 Real Estate online Loan."

In response to reporters' questions, the minister denied that "he heared anything about decreasing wages", stressing that he only knew about this through media, noting that media reports should be objective and accurate and must stay away from any internal affairs or destabilizing issues.

Sheikh Mohammad added that the message by His Highness the Premier Sheikh Jaber Mubarak Hamad Al-Sabah was clear, noting that all those who are serious and dedicated to work in the government sector are welcome.

On a different front, the minister added that the government is monitoring the economic situation closely with the National Assembly and members of the financial committee, stressing that their upcoming Saturday meeting will include statistics and plans on the country's full economic reform.

In response to a question on cutting expenses, Sheikh Mohammad said measures will only affect electricity projects due to high expenses of these projects, adding that they also have to find ways for cutting expenses on projects that are associated directly with the country's national development plan.

The minister also highlighted ways to improve electronic government, noting that such concept is changing on a daily basis, adding that services will be improved in the future.
