Continued recovery in oil prices.
Kuwait’s foreign reserves rose 1.57% or $ 712.8 million on a monthly basis last January, amid a recovery in oil prices.
The country’s reserves rose to 13.896 billion dinars ($ 45.85 billion) in January, compared to 13.68 billion dinars ($ 45.14 billion) in December 2021, according to official data from the Central Bank of Kuwait today.
On an annual basis, reserves fell 2.4 percent from 14.24 billion dinars ($ 46.99 billion) in January 2021.
The oil-rich country has about 12.214 billion dinars ($ 40.3 billion) in deposits and about 1.366 billion dinars ($ 4.5 billion) in addition to Kuwait’s International Monetary Fund special drawing rights.
It holds about 236.5 million dinars ($ 783.23 million) in the International Monetary Fund.

The Kuwaiti economy has been trying to recover from the aftermath of the corona crisis over the past two years, using high oil prices to represent more than 90% of government revenue.
