October 25, 2016, 8:55 am

The National Council for Culture, Arts and Letters (NCCAL) stressed Monday importance of its excavation projects in Failaka Island and Kuwait's desert in building a sustainable historic-cultural heritage base.

The excavation works, currently underway in cooperation with a number of international research institutes, would contribute to exploring the nature of urbanism and the civilization that existed in Kuwait over 7,000 years ago, Dr. Hamed Al-Mutairi, Director of the NCCAL's Museums and Antiquities Department, told KUNA.

These projects contribute also to sustainability of the cultural tourism infrastructure as part of the country's development plan, Al-Mutairi noted.

He added that the ongoing works in Failaka and the desert include excavating, land surveying, renovating and preserving cultural properties, in addition to upcoming plans of rebooting tourism and scientific issuances, as well as enhancing national cadres.
