On tourism, the country has worked on enhancing this sector, which has become a main pillar in its national economy. It also launched the national tourism strategy for 2030, with the aim of raising the country's status as the best tourist identity all over the world.
Commenting on this occasion, Kuwait's Ambassador to the UAE Jamal Al-Ghunaim confirmed to KUNA in a statement Friday that this national occasion embodies the unity and cohesion between the countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), especially Kuwait and UAE, to strengthen relations in all aspects for the benefit of the two countries and their brotherly peoples.
