Uruguay, Kuwait ea­ger to boost eco­nomic ties

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

A se­nior of­fi­cial at the Kuwaiti Min­istry of Com­merce and In­dus­try yes­ter­day said they are keen on en­hanc­ing trade co­op­er­a­tion with Uruguay. The Min­istry’s Un­der­sec­re­tary Khaled Al-Shamali made the state­ment after a meet­ing with a visit­ing del­e­ga­tion from the Arab-Uruguayan cham­ber of in­te­gra­tion for food se­cu­rity and cli­mate change. The del­e­ga­tion of­fered the Min­istry a study on is­sues to se­cure food and wa­ter among na­tions to face cli­mate change, AlShamali added, not­ing that it would be of great value for mod­i­fy­ing and redi­rect­ing cer­tain trade ac­tiv­i­ties in Kuwait. The visit re­it­er­ates the distin­guished ties be­tween Kuwait and the South Amer­ica Re­pub­lic, he said. In 2010, the two coun­tries signed a trade agree­ment, Al-Shamali said. The visit paves the way for a fu­ture meet­ing be­tween the con­cerned bod­ies in both coun­tries for fur­ther co­op­er­a­tion. He ex­pressed hope that a meet­ing would be soon held to make the ut­most ben­e­fit from the study and to dis­cuss the in­vest­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties be­tween the pri­vate sec­tors in the two coun­tries.
