KUWAIT, June 2 (KUNA) — A group of GCC representatives from Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, the UAE discussed with Mexico the activation of a committee to encourage investments between the two sides.
In the second forum to discuss the outcome of the visit of Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto to the GCC countries last January, the two sides discussed an agenda to boost cooperation between Mexico and the GCC, Kuwaiti Ambassador to Mexico Samih Hayat said in a statement Thursday.
He noted that they also approved a joint-labor agreement on the recommendations issued by Mexico’s investment authority during a meeting with GCC ambassadors, regarding investment, industry, trade, tourism and agriculture. In this context, he mentioned the successful visit of Mexican Minister of Agriculture, Livestock and Rural Development to the Gulf region last May, accompanied by a big number of Mexican trade officials.
Meanwhile, Hayat said the forum recommended looking into GCC imports and Mexican exports, mainly the “halal” products produced by the country. The participants also discussed taking benefit from the Mexican marketing experience, as the country is one of the top exporters in the world, said the ambassador.
The forum, chaired by ambassador Hayat, was patronized by CEO of ProMexico Francisco Gonzalez, and attended by senior Mexican, Saudi and Emirati officials. (end) ag
