Moreover, he noted that KFH-Turkey’s equity outpaces USD 1 billion where it started with a capital of USD 10 million. He affirmed that Turkey, with arms wide open, welcomes Kuwaitis, whether tourists or investors, and offers them all privileges and facilities needed.
SimSek expressed his pride and gratitude towards the exerted efforts that contributed in organizing the forum, explaining that such events and activities play a significant role in enhancing cooperation between private sectors of both countries.
