Kuwait the first GCC country to recognize China and to have an Embassy located in it, enjoyed relations based on mutual respect and cooperation with China for the past five decades. This culminated in 2009, here in Beijing, during the visit of His Highness Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, The Amir of Kuwait; where Kuwait and China agreed to deepen bilateral cooperation in economic, trade, energy, infrastructure and finance sectors.

KIA realized the importance of investing in China and the Far East. The agreements signed in 2009 laid down the basic ground work for such investments. One of the results of this is the establishment in Beijing of Kuwait Investment Authority’s first ever representative office.

KIRO is KIA’s first representative office after KIA’s London office which was established in 1953. Selecting China as the destination for KIA’s office was a logical decision because of what China offers in terms of an encouraging economic foundation. This office will be a gateway to expanding KIA’s investment throughout Asia.
