According to the Kuwait News Agency, “Kuwait and Brazil agreed on establishment of a joint investment company, said Board Member of Kuwait Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI) Sayer Al-Sayer here.

Al-Sayer said late on Saturday, after a banquet held by Brazil’s President in the honor of His Highness the Prime Minister of Kuwait Sheikh Nasser Al-Mohammad Al-Sabah, that the two countries agreed on preparing “an initial study for the establishment of the company.” He said the aim of the company will be to boost economic relations between Kuwait and Brazil, adding that it would also have positive effect on trade exchange between Kuwait and Brazil. Brazil is rich in oil, agricultural resources and livestock, he pointed out, noting that the country is due to host several crucial international events, namely international Olympic games and the World Soccer Cup — events that will contribute to reviving the national economy and impact in particular on the private sector, he noted.

The two countries will form a joint committee to prepare studies on the issue, he said, alluding to the accord. As part of His Highness the Prime Minister’s tour in Latin America, th KCCI is seeking to stress economic ties with the regional counties. Al-Sayer is heading KCCI’s delegation accompanying His Highness the Prime Minister.”
