Well a. Big difference in kuwait as an expat we can't buy property cause the government does not want the expats owning a part of the country as its kuwait for Kuwaitis
But like everything here they want our skills but give us nothing back
That's why we take all we can out of the country as an employee or via our companies charging the government excissive rates for jobs
