(MENAFN) Kuwait’s council of ministers approved a proposal to hike the state’s non-oil revenues to about $14.55 billion at the end of the 2010-2014 economic development plan’s period, Al Watan daily reported.

The proposal, made by Finance Minister Mustafa Al Shamali, aims to increase the contribution of non-oil revenues to total revenues in 2013/2014, the final year of the development plan, to nearly 30 percent from 12 percent in the base year, according to data about the plan that the paper has received.
