Chinese Ambassador Wang Di recently stated that the Belt and Road Initiative could bolster relations between China and Kuwait greatly. Since 1971, the diplomatic relations between the two countries have seen sustained advances in their ties, he noted.
“We firmly believe that, with joint efforts from both sides, China-Kuwait cooperation in the Belt and Road Initiative will bear fruitful results, serving the economic and social development of both sides and further promoting friendly ties.”
Kuwait was the first Gulf Arab state to established full diplomatic ties with China. The Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st-Century Maritime Silk Road Initiative concurs with the vision of Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah to transform Kuwait into a global hub for finance and commerce, he said.
Kuwait is one of the first Arab countries to have signed a cooperation agreement with China under the Belt and Road Initiative, Wang stated.
He also stated that China and Kuwait are complement each other with regard to economy.
“China is advanced in planning and building economic zones and free trade areas. Chinese enterprises have gained rich experience in port terminal construction, island planning and project implementation.”
