India and oil-rich Kuwait will review their bilateral ties and explore ways to step up cooperation in various areas including trade and investment during a key meeting next week.
Both sides will deliberate on major issues of mutual interest at the third meeting of India-Kuwait Joint Ministerial Commission for Trade, Economic, Scientific and Technological Cooperation to be held in Kuwait from September 18-20.
The Indian delegation will be led by Minister of State for External Affairs M J Akbar.
"During the visit, the entire gamut of bilateral relations would be reviewed and priorities will be set for future cooperation," the ministry of external affairs said in a statement.
Kuwait has been an important trading partner for India. It is also the seventh largest crude supplier to India in 2016-17.
Around 900,000 Indians are currently working in Kuwait.
