Director General Bader Al-Wugayan meets with a delegation from Korea

The government is working laboriously to ensure the success of the South Saad Al-Abdullah housing project, pegged as Kuwait's first "Smart City."

A statement issued by the Public Authority for Housing Welfare (PAHW) on Wednesday, to which KUNA obtained a copy of, noted that its Director General Bader Al-Wugayan met with a delegation from Korea Land and Housing Corporation to plan out the project.

Moreover, Al-Wugayan noted that His Highness the Prime Minister's visit to South Korea in May set in motion this remarkable project, as the planning phase for the project will be launched in November.

Furthermore, an official from the South Korean company predicted that the plan and design phase for the project is expected to last around 20 months, adding that the delegation has met with a number of government bodies involved in the project.

Touted as the country's first "Smart City", South Saad Al-Abdullah will feature comprehensive Wi-Fi connection, in addition to being environment-friendly and equipped with the latest technological breakthroughs.
