Kuwait is a rich country with abundant oil reserves in the Middle East. Due to the importation of almost all kinds of goods, Kuwait's total import turnover is quite large (up to US$30 billion and diversified from main commodities such as electronics, agricultural products, building materials to consumer goods such as clothing, food.
