(MENAFN) Alshall Economic report said that the state budget of Kuwait for the financial year (2009-2010) ending April 7, 2010, secured a surplus of $20.76 billion, Kuwait Times reported.

By the end of February 2010, actual oil revenues reached $52.5 billion with the total oil revenues of the year hitting $57.4 billion. Actual non-oil revenues amounted to $3.8 billion which pushed the total state revenues to $61.2 billion, the report said.
