Relation between Kuwait and India

Hello everyone Do you know the relation between Kuwait and India. If you don`t know then come on read my info about it.

India–Kuwait relations are bilateral diplomatic relations between the Republic of India and the State of Kuwait. The two countries share friendly ties. Kuwait houses a large expatriate Indian population and is the source for 10-12% of India's oil imports while India is among the largest trade partners of Kuwait. Indians form one of the largest expatriate communities in Kuwait numbering about 640,000 people. Their presence in white collar jobs have been increasing consistently especially in the electronic, industrial, architectural and engineering sectors. Kuwait's Ministry of Health also employs a significant number of Indian medics and paramedics. Indians have been described by the Emir's special envoy as having acquired a special space in Kuwait as "a brilliant and the least problematic expatriate community which works for the overall development of Kuwait". There are however a large number of Indians working in low paying jobs and in 2011 as many as 22,000 Indians were found to be staying illegally in Kuwait and the Indian embassy in Kuwait facilitated the departure of 12,825 Indian nationals to India following the declaration of an Amnesty in Kuwait. Indians in Kuwait remit over US$3 billion annually to India and Kuwait is home to 300 Indian associations and 18 Indian schools affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education, New Delhi.
