GCC-Sino commercial exchange continuously growing - Kuwait Amb.

| TOKYO, May 15 (KUNA) -- Commercial exchange between the GCC and China has been ever-growing since the signing of the free trade zone agreement in 2004 and in this year, the level of exchange has reached USD 155 million, said Kuwait's Ambassador to China Mohammad Saleh Al-Thuwaikh Wednesday.

Al-Thuwaik's statement came during a lecture on GCC-Sino relations at the Beijing Foreign Studies University (BFSU).

GCC-Sino relations began with the opening of the Kuwaiti Embassy in Beijing in 1971, leading other Gulf States to establish their own diplomatic missions, said Al-Thuwaikh.

The Kuwaiti diplomat affirmed that commercial and economic relations between China and the GCC were further developed when the strategic mechanism to reinforce ties was established in 2010 which in turn contributed to the increase of commercial exchange.

He affirmed that obstacles hindering relations would be resolved to further develop relations on all spheres.

The lecture at BFSU was attended by diplomats, Chinese government officials, students, media personnel and academics. (end) kns.gta KUNA 151643 May 13NNNN
