Kuwait opens a Chinese centre in its capital, Kuwait City, on Saturday, to promote cultural exchanges and deepen economic and trade cooperation.

Tea art, traditional Chinese medicine and Chinese food, are very famous in Kuwait, said Yao Jian, the director of the Chinese Centre.

“We hope more Kuwaitis and people from neighbouring countries will enjoy the rich and colourful Chinese culture in this centre,” he said.

Zeinab Mohammed, director of the Sino-Kuwaiti Friendship Association, said, “We need such a Chinese centre, to understand the Chinese culture.”

“Kuwaitis could learn about Chinese culture and everything related to it, such as the Chinese concept of health and the treatment of traditional Chinese medicine,” she said.

Ahmed Abdul Salam, a Kuwaiti businessman, who attended the ceremony, agreed.

“The centre provides an opportunity for us to figure out a beautiful Chinese culture, so as to contribute to the trade and cultural exchanges,” he said.
