Qatar and Kuwait on Thursday explored ways of developing mechanisms to unify efforts to support non-oil industries in the light of both countries’ efforts towards achieving economic diversification, bolstering joint investments in industrial sectors with added value and expanding towards major global markets.

In this regard, HE Ali bin Ahmed al-Kuwari, Minister of Commerce and Industry, met with his Kuwaiti counterpart Khaled bin Nasser al-Roudhan, on the sidelines of the “Made in Qatar” exhibition, currently being held in Kuwait.

Kuwait’s Prime Minister Sheikh Sabah Khalid al-Hamad al-Sabah received al-Kuwari, who is in Kuwait as part of the expo, which will conclude on Saturday.

Discussions also touched on the promotion of bilateral ties and the development of joint co-operation, particularly in the trade, investment and industrial fields in view of the friendly relations between both countries.

Al-Kuwari highlighted the strength of bilateral co-operation and the strategic partnership between both countries as well as their keenness to bolster co-operation to meet the aspirations of both nations.

Discussions also focused on promoting co-ordination frameworks to stimulate competition and consumer protection as well as efforts to facilitate investment procedures for the Qatari and Kuwaiti businesses.
