May 6, 2018, 12:16 pm

Ambassador of Netherlands to Kuwait H.E. Frans Poyut held a gala reception last week at his residence to mark the birthday of King Willem Alexander of The Netherlands.

Addressing the invitees, Ambassador Poyut warmly welcomed the guest of honor, Kuwait’s Assistant Foreign Minister for Economic Affairs, Amal Al Hamad, and pointed to the close and friendly relations between the two countries in all spheres.

He added that this year the relations are even more closer, as The Netherlands and Kuwait are members of the United Nations Security Council, where both countries are collaborating closely for a better world, and relentlessly working to put an end to the human suffering in places like Palestine, Yemen and Syria. Ambassador Poyut also informed the guests of the initiatives taken by the embassy in Kuwait such as the recently-held Dutch Healthy Food Week, and also the upcoming new theme on water, food and energy.

He highlighted the people to people contacts saying that in the last three years, visa-applications have doubled as many Kuwaitis were visiting Holland as tourists, and also more youngsters were enrolling in universities there, further cementing lifelong friendships.

In conclusion, he praised the initiative taken by the Kuwaiti embassy in The Hague, together with the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs, to invite eight Kuwaiti and eight Dutch students to sit together in a Diwanya-style setting to share views about the future.
