Kuwait Direct Investment Promotion Authority (KDIPA) Director General Sheikh Dr. Meshaal Jaber Al Ahmad Al Sabah, received Lord Marland of Odstock, Co-Chairman of the Kuwait British Business Centre (KBBC), and Mr. Martin Hill, CEO of KBBC, on June 16, 2015, to discuss the role of KBBC, as an initiative by UKTI to enhance Kuwait-UK relations. KBBC is expected to encourage the British companies to invest in Kuwait, by providing needed information and services to facilitate their entry and establishment of their business in Kuwait, as well as helping them to benefit from a host of lucrative investment opportunities within the second development plan, PPP and privatization projects, and government contracts. It is worth mentioning that this initiative comes as an integral part to support the objectives of the Kuwait-UK Joint Steering Group, that was established after the state visit of H.H. the Emir of Kuwait to UK in November 2012, to culminate the significance of the historical and strategic relations between both countries, especially in investment and trade.
