KUWAIT, Feb 15 (KUNA) -- A high-level Chinese delegation will arrive in Kuwait tomorrow, Saturday, to hold strategic talks on bolstering economic cooperation.
Kuwaiti Ambassador to China Sameeh Hayat said in a statement, obtained by KUNA, that the 35-member delegation will be on a two-day visit, which came to fulfill a memo signed between the two sides concerning the development of the Al-Harir city and five Kuwaiti Islands.
The visit also was one of the many fruitful outcomes of His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah's visit to China last year, affirmed Ambassador Hayat.
Amiri Envoy and First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Sheikh Nasser Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah's visit in December of 2018 also pushed relations forward, said the Kuwaiti diplomat.
As for the possible venues of cooperation, Ambassador Hayat said that the Kuwait Vision 2035 -- a development plan to transform the Gulf country to an regional and international hub for commerce and business -- could intersect with China's own aspiring plan, the "Belt and Road Initiative".
Ambassador Hayat stressed that China was a strategic partner and essential investors in Kuwait's ambitious plans, adding that the two nations' relations were exemplary and fantastic especially in the economic domain.
The Kuwaiti diplomat revealed that Kuwait and China were in agreement to help each other to realize their plans to develop their own economies and also help in the progress and welfare of other countries.
Vice Chairman of the National Development and Reform Commission of the People's Republic of China Ning Jizhe will head the Chinese delegation. (end)
