A Lot Here And There

India and Kuwait have been traditionally connected countries, which dates back to many millenniums. The two countries are bonded together, enjoying friendly relations, and have stood the test of time. Geographic proximity, historical trade links, cultural affinities and presence of large number of Indian nationals in Kuwait continue to sustain and nurture this long-standing relationship.

India has been a natural trading partner of Kuwait like many other countries in the region and until recently, Indian Rupee was the legal currency in Kuwait. Historically, Indo-Kuwaiti relations have always had an important trade dimension. India has consistently been among the top ten trading partners of Kuwait. Till the discovery and development of oil, Kuwait’s economy revolved around its fine harbor and maritime activities which included ship building, pearl diving, fishing and voyages to India on wooden dhows carrying dates, Arabian horses and pearls that were traded for wood, cereals, clothes and spices.

Commercially, the two countries enjoy massive investments for the development of industries, trade and in other areas of interest. Kuwait remains a reliable supplier of crude oil &LPG to India, meeting our crucial energy needs. Both countries have an Educational Exchange Program on Cooperation in Education and Learning.

For a long time, there is a sustainable interest to know, understand the Indian Culture and there have been regular exchanges in these fields. Kuwait attended the two day 'International Conference on Yoga for Body and Beyond’ at New Delhi.

The presence of Indian community members in Kuwait, the largest expatriate community in Kuwait form an important dimension of our bilateral ties with oil-rich Kuwait. They are present in all segments of society in Kuwait and are considered largely as disciplined, hardworking, and law-abiding.

India and Kuwait are committed to further strengthen and build these multi-faceted ties evolved over the years.
