• The GRF is the repository of all income of the State of Kuwait. Accordingly all State budget expenditures are paid out of the GRF. The transfers from the GRF to pay the State budgetary expenditures are sanctioned by law.
  • No assets can be withdrawn from the FGF unless sanctioned by law. All investment income are reinvested as required by Law No. 106 of 1976.
  • The only exception for the FGF was withdrawal of funds during the Iraqi invasion and occupation in 1990/1991 where funds are withdrawn for the FGF to pay for the cost of liberation and subsequent reconstruction. Nearly $85 billion were withdrawn from the FGF during 1990 until 1994. In any event, all amounts of funds which were withdrawn were fully repaid to the FGF.
