Kuwaiti Ambassador to Japan Abdulrahman Al-Otaibi and Japanese local economy and political leadership have agreed to work toward further strengthening of economic cooperation between the two countries, the embassy said Tuesday.

During the talks, the ambassador affirmed Kuwait's readiness to further develop economic cooperation with both Japanese public and private sectors. In response, Japanese officials expressed gratitude for his attendance at the international meeting and their wish to see more Kuwaiti investment involvement in the Japanese economic structure.
"The Nagoya meeting was a real opportunity for further cooperative networking between Kuwaiti diplomatic mission and the Japanese local economy and political leadership," Al-Otaibi noted after the gathering, which brought together ambassadors and diplomats of many countries.
The meeting in Nagoya, Japan's fourth-biggest city, was organized by Aichi Prefecture and Nagoya city authorities in order to provide envoys to Japan with a new opportunity to promote exchange and create chances of closer mutual understanding and cooperation with local political and business leaders.
