Kuwait Think Tank Delegation Visited IWAAS


On the afternoon of October 15th, the delegation of three members from the Kuwait think tank led by Professor Anwar, professor of economics as well as general coordinator of the educational administration of University of Kuwait(KU), was invited to visit the Institute of West-Asian and African Studies(IWAAS)and had in-depth communications with scholars there. The activity co-organized by the team of innovation project ‘Hot Issues in the Middle East and China’s Countermeasures’ and the Gulf Studies Centre of Chinese Academy of Social Sciences(CASS)was hosted by Professor Yang Guang, former director of IWAAS and president of Chinese Association of Middle East Studies (CHAMES).

 

Scholars from Kuwait introduced recent changes in the Gulf region and ‘Kuwait Vision 2035’. Both sides later extensively discussed with each other centering on topics including Trump’s Plan for Middle East Peace and Kuwait’s attitudes, the functions, operating mechanism and composition of Kuwait National Assembly, features and impacts of the Muslim Brotherhood, divisions and prospects of the Gulf Cooperation Council(GCC), economic environment for foreign business in Kuwait, etc.

 

Furthermore, according to their opinions, despite some difficulties and challenges in the Gulf currently, a stable and peaceful Gulf served China’s interests; Kuwait could in turn benefit from steady development of China which enjoyed credible global influence politically, economically and culturally; playing a critical role in the stability of the region, Kuwait was looking forward to strengthening China- Kuwait cooperation.

 

The symposium was held in the 2nd meeting room in IWAAS. Professor Wang Lincong(assistant of the general director of IWAAS, vice president and secretary-general of the CHAMES), Professor Yu Guoqing, Professor Wang Feng(vice director of Division of Middle East International Relations of IWAAS), Professor Liu Dong(vice director of Division of Middle East Studies of IWAAS)and other scholars participated in this meeting. Over 10 graduate students from IWAAS joined in the discussion as well.
