Embassy launches 4th edition of ‘Palestinian Products Festival’
Exports to Kuwait have seen a significant increase

KUWAIT: The Embassy of Palestine to Kuwait launched the 4th edition of the “Palestinian Products Festival” under the patronage of Palestinian Ambassador Rami Tahboub at the Graduates Society. On the sidelines of the event, Ibrahim Najjar, the Executive Manager of Palcircless, highlighted the challenges faced by Palestinian companies in participating in exhibitions, saying “Despite the difficulties posed by the region’s intricate road network, which includes 756 military checkpoints, 11 Palestinian companies managed to participate in the exhibition. However, the ongoing siege and war in Gaza prevented companies from that region from contributing to the event. These barriers make it challenging to transport goods.”

Najjar underscored the importance of the Kuwaiti market for Palestinian exports, noting the trust placed in Palestinian products by Kuwaiti consumers.

This positive trend reflects the potential for further growth in trade relations between Palestine and Kuwait.

He underscored the festival’s importance in supporting the Palestinian economy amid challenging circumstances, including the ongoing situation in Gaza and the West Bank, indicating that the presence of a diverse audience, including ambassadors to Kuwait which reflects the widespread appreciation for the quality of Palestinian products.
