The deputy minister added that Kuwait hosted over one million Indian workers who remarkably contribute to the state development and renaissance through their work in the public and private sectors.

"India is home to one of the oldest living civilizations and considered the mother of democracy. Our ancient belief of ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’ (the world is a family) has become a beacon of our foreign policy as well. You can see its embodiment in the Indian foreign policy approaches and practices," Ambassador Dr Adarsh Swaika said in his welcome speech.
