December 9, 2018, 12:17 pm

A high-level delegation comprising the foreign minister of Germany is expected to visit Kuwait soon, disclosed German Ambassador to Kuwait H.E. Karl Bergner, during the annual press luncheon held by the German embassy last week.

Addressing the media, Ambassador Bergner noted the close and deep ties existing between Kuwait and Germany in all spheres of relations. “We have had intense discussions recently on various issues such as environment, climate change, humanitarian and development aid,” he pointed out, adding that politically both countries work closely in many fields.

“We had big success on the commercial side with the signing of the letter of intent of setting up a sewage treatment plant worth 1.5 billion euro in Umm Al Haiman,” the ambassador disclosed.

“Germany is the largest exporter to Kuwait within the European Union and is also looking to cooperate in several fields, such as banking, digital technology, renewable energy and healthcare,” he pointed out.

The ambassador added that he would like to see more exchanges on the cultural side and also for an increase in the number of Kuwaiti students studying in Germany in the coming year. “We want to encourage more Kuwaitis to study in Germany this year and that will be one of the focus areas, by increasing the scholarships,” the ambassador said.

The annual luncheon held for media persons by the embassy provides a very interactive and friendly atmosphere for frank exchanges between each other. The activities held during the year and various issues are discussed during the meeting, which also provides an excellent platform for understanding the efforts undertaken in furthering relations between Kuwait and Germany.
