It is with great pleasure that I write to invite you to join me on this year’s Pathfinder Trade Mission to Kuwait which will coincide with a major British Government initiative in Kuwait to promote all that is best about British Exports, Trade and Investment and Services to Kuwait.
The Trade Mission which I will be leading will coincide with a visit to Kuwait by the Red Arrows, the PM’s Trade Envoy to Kuwait Baroness Morris. This is very good news indeed and will certainly give us all a boost on arrival in Kuwait and we have therefore very slightly amended the dates of the Mission to 25-28 September to ensure that we are in market during this high profile time for the UK. You may already have heard Pathfinder is working closely with the British Embassy and also the Kuwait British Business Centre to develop a very special programme for delegates. Prior to departure delegates have been invited by the Embassy to attend a high level reception to see the Red Arrows in action.
Kuwait currently offers some of the best opportunities for British exporters and services in the region, in all fields. At a time when economies worldwide are faltering, Kuwait, an immensely rich country, has embarked on a very ambitious five year investment programme estimated at $112 billion aimed at diversifying the economy, and developing private enterprise and a skilled entrepreneurial workforce.
Kuwait will achieve its goals by adapting a multi strand finance and investment strategy, to back this up Kuwait wants to encourage UK specialists and companies to partner in its programmes which will involve significant investment in social Infrastructure for example Health care and Education as well as developing its major infrastructure projects which range from Power Generation and desalination, metro and Rail Projects, as well as new air and port developments, many projects will be government backed and involve PPP so there is also plenty of scope for UK Financial services as well. These Major projects will inevitably open the doors for the backbone of UK industries our SME’s who are involved in the various supply chain industries in all sectors.
In my opinion the timing for this trade mission is spot on, and I am delighted that UK Government is giving such great support to British Exporters and I do hope that you will be able to join me on this very special occasion.
