In a bid to further discuss and devise strategies for streamlining the issuance of business visas, the Kuwaiti Interior Ministry is ready to hold negotiations with #Pakistan, said Consul General of Kuwait Salem Yousif Al-Hamdan.
In this regard, he added, Pakistan’s Ministry of Interior had been approached some time ago but unfortunately Kuwait had not received any response so far.
Speaking at a meeting during his visit to the Karachi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI), the envoy told businessmen that around 120 communities were living in Kuwait which was why it had a stringent visa policy.
“We want to streamline the issuance of business visa, hence, negotiations must take place between interior ministries of the two friendly countries as soon as possible,” he added. Talking about the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), the consul general pointed out that it was a very important project, which would have a positive impact not only on Pakistan but the entire region.
“To attract the interest of Kuwaiti business community and other investors from the Gulf, we asked the government of Balochistan to organise a CPEC conference in Karachi,” he said
