Kuwaiti Ambassador to Japan Abdulrahman Al-Otaibi hosted a reception in honor of a Kuwaiti delegation from the Ministry of Electricity and Water, who is visiting here to attend a two-week training course on "The transfer and distribution of electric power". In a speech at the reception held at the embassy, Al-Otaibi stressed the importance of maximizing benefit from the program that mirrors Japan's long experience in this field. The ambassador expressed his appreciation for the efforts exerted by the delegates to give a good image for the Kuwaitis to the Japanese people during the course, and encouraged them to take advantage of the program after returning to Kuwait. "This course comes in five other programs, provided in the Memorandum of Understanding reached in mid-June between the Kuwaiti Civil Service Commission and Japan International Cooperation Center on technical cooperation for the development of Kuwait's human resources," Al-Otaibi said, pointing out that the agreement came within the framework of implementation of the recommendations and the results of visit to Japan by Kuwaiti Deputy Premier and Foreign Minister Sheikh Dr. Mohammad Sabah Al-Salem Al-Sabah early June.
"These programs are an important step toward strengthening and deepening cooperation in all fields between Kuwait and Japan, especially for the celebration of the 50th anniversary of bilateral diplomatic ties next year," the ambassador emphasized. For their part, the delegation showed gratitude to the ambassador for his efforts in realizing their successful visit to Japan, noting that the program has greatly benefited themselves in learning the most important features of Japan's electric industry and everything related to plants and equipment, laboratories and centers of advanced research. "The course was also a good opportunity to get to know the latest findings from the Japanese technology in the field of energy saving," one of the delegates said. Under the June agreement, the two more training courses will be conducted by the end of this year for officials at the Ministry of Public Works as well as the Ministry of Electricity and Water, while the rest of the programs will be launched next year.
