MoC Kuwait struggling to recoup USD400m in unpaid bills

31 May 2012

Kuwait’s Ministry of Communications (MoC), which acts as both the country’s telecoms regulator and monopoly fixed line telephone operator, says it is owed KWD112.8 million (USD400 million) in unpaid bills. According to a report from MENAFM, which cites daily newspaper Al-Jareeda, the Ministry has no clear mechanism for the collection of unpaid bills, which is why outstanding debts are accumulating. Government departments owe the MoC almost KWD12 million, the report suggests, while one ISP owes around KWD3 million and a satellite service provider owes KWD2 million.
