In the Name Allah the Most Gracious the Most Merciful.

Let me first express my appreciation and gratitude for the hospitality we have received in India, this great country which shares many historical ties with Kuwait.

The relationship that we have enjoyed over the years was always multi-faceted, but you, the business community, played a vital role in strengthening this relationship.

The Kuwaiti-Indian bond grew, despite geographical distance, difficult circumstances, transportation problems and the language barrier. It is an enduring legacy and a shining example of how different nations can live in harmony and peace.

Today’s meeting represents a continuation of this historical relationship that was forged by our forefathers. We must develop this relationship further, using the benefits globalization brings and the policies of economic reform as stepping stones to a greater future.

The economic relationship that we envisage is one that provides job opportunities and a high standard of living for the people of our two countries. Based on mutual trust and equality, this relationship will have a long term vision.

In conclusion, I wish you great success in your discussions, and I hope that the outcome of this meeting will represent yet another step towards success for Kuwait and India.
