KUWAIT CITY, March 18, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- This week, a special exhibition devoted to young Kuwaiti entrepreneurs is occurring at the Mishref International Exhibition Fairground. His Highness the Prime Minister Sheikh Nasser Al-Mohammed Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah is the patron of "Proud 2 Be Kuwaiti," now in its fourth year.

"Proud 2 Be Kuwaiti" (P2BK) showcases small businesses and unique products from young Kuwaitis. Booths at the forum include clothing, food items, media, decorations, accessories, perfumes and toys.

Sheikh Nasser has supported Kuwaiti innovation for many years. "We encourage the owners of small projects to work in all fields as Kuwait should be built on the efforts and work of its citizens," Prime Minister Nasser said during the opening ceremony. "Kuwaitis are known for their creativity and we believe in their ability to work on developing the country."

Sheikh Nasser spent several hours at the fair viewing different exhibits. "Everything here is a Kuwaiti brand and was made or invented in Kuwait. We thank the participants and the organizers of the P2BK for their efforts in making this event successful."

The group was founded five years ago by Kuwaiti professionals to give Kuwaiti youth a forum to learn about business. At P2BK, young entrepreneurs are exposed to established business leaders who offer insight into how to develop a professional career.
