Radio Kuwait launches first Hindi broadcast

KUWAIT: The Indian Embassy in Kuwait announced on Monday that the first Hindi radio broadcast has commenced in Kuwait. This initiative is expected to enhance the bonds between the two nations. In a statement shared on X, the embassy expressed gratitude to the information ministry for launching a Hindi program on Radio Kuwait, airing on FM 93.3 and AM 96.3 every Sunday from 8:30 to 9:00 pm, starting from April 21, 2024. This move is anticipated to further solidify the relationship between India and Kuwait.

The Indian community, comprising approximately 1 million individuals, constitutes the largest expatriate group in Kuwait. Among them are professionals such as engineers, doctors, chartered accountants, scientists, software experts, management consultants, architects, technicians, nurses, as well as retail traders and businessmen.

The Indian business community in Kuwait has established a prominent presence in the local market, particularly in retail and distribution sectors. India and Kuwait share traditionally friendly relations, deeply rooted in history and enduring over time. India has historically been a significant trading partner of Kuwait, and until 1961, the Indian rupee served as the legal tender in Kuwait. The year 2021-22 commemorated the 60th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the two countries.

On April 17, Indian Ambassador to Kuwait Adarsh Swaika met Kuwait’s Deputy Prime Minister, Defense Minister and Acting Interior Minister Sheikh Fahad Al-Yousef Al-Sabah to commend the expatriate-friendly measures implemented during his tenure. Ambassador Swaika also briefed him on recent developments within the Indian community.
