As part of its efforts to strengthen ties and forge new trade links with Kuwait, the Welsh Government will be supporting eight businesses during a trade mission to Kuwait City from October 8 – 10.
professional services and manufacturing sectors will be aiming to develop their trading relationships with Kuwait, by using opportunities to network and showcase their products and services.
Kuwait and Wales have a long-standing trade partnership, and further developing this relationship is a priority for the Welsh Government. Between 2013 and 2018, exports of goods from Wales to the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region reached a cumulative total of £5.8 billion. More widely, UK exports of goods and services to Kuwait rose by 14% between 2017 and 2018, with a value of £2.5 billion in 2018.
Commenting on the mission, Welsh Government Minister for International Relations, Eluned Morgan, said:
“This trade mission will provide an ideal platform for eight innovative Welsh businesses to build on existing links and establish new partnerships. Kuwait is a fast-growing market which offers opportunities for Welsh businesses across a variety of sectors, ranging from technology and manufacturing through to creative industries and food and drink.
“Trade missions are an important part of our ongoing commitment to sell Wales to the world and highlight that we are very much open for business. We want our friends across the globe to know that Wales is the ideal partner to trade with and invest in.
“We look forward to showcasing the best of Welsh business throughout the two days, helping them to develop and strengthen their trading relationships with Kuwaiti companies and drive growth.”
