Particularly in view of the approved legislations, aiming at encouraging foreign businessmen to invest in Kuwait, and to provide all the possible guarantees on the movement of capitals, as well as the encouraging facilities, either individually or in partnership with Kuwaiti businessmen.

In conclusion, I hope that this meeting will further enhance the distinguished relations between the State of Kuwait and the Federal Republic of Germany.
