Turkey, Kuwait agree to en­hance in­dus­try ties

Dünya Executive - - REPORT -

Turkey and Kuwait agreed last week to en­hance bi­lat­eral ties in the in­dus­try and tech­nol­ogy sec­tors. The agree­ment came in a meet­ing be­tween Turk­ish In­dus­try and Tech­nol­ogy Min­is­ter Mustafa Varank and his Kuwaiti coun­ter­part, Khaled Nasser al-Roudan, in Turkey’s cap­i­tal Ankara.

“We aim to en­hance our co­op­er­a­tion in fields of econ­omy, in­dus­try and tech­nol­ogy as well as mu­tual in­vest­ments on the 55th an­niver­sary of our re­la­tions,” Varank said. He un­der­scored Kuwait’s sig­nif­i­cance in the re­gion with its hu­man­i­tar­ian for­eign pol­icy that con­trib­utes to sta­bil­ity as well as its ef­forts sup­port­ing the Pales­tinian cause, ef­forts to re­solve the cri­sis in Ye­men and mend the rift in the Gulf Co­op­er­a­tion Coun­cil. Varank stressed that Turkey adopted a new pol­icy of pro­duc­tion and en­cour­ages in­vest­ments and can share its ex­pe­ri­ence in in­dus­try with Kuwait.

For his part, al-Roudan hailed the “dis­tin­guished re­la­tions be­tween Turkey and Kuwait on all lev­els,” cit­ing that Turkey is Kuwait’s sec­ond big­gest in­vestor. The Kuwaiti pri­vate sec­tor, the of­fi­cial said, is “the largest in the Mid­dle East that in­vests in Turkey,” which re­flects “trust” on the level of of­fi­cials and the pri­vate sec­tor. Al-Roudan pointed out that Turk­ish com­pa­nies op­er­at­ing in Kuwait are per­form­ing “im­pres­sive” jobs in vi­tal pro­jects, cit­ing Turk­ish com­pa­nies’ work in the con­struc­tion of Ter­mi­nal 2 at the in­ter­na­tional Kuwait Air­port. Kuwait can ben­e­fit from Turkey’s ex­ten­sive ex­pe­ri­ence in in­dus­try which is proven by the strength of Turk­ish prod­ucts, he added.
