Prime Minister Saad Hariri received Thursday afternoon at the Center House the Kuwaiti Minister of Commerce and Industry Khaled Nasser Abdullah Al-Roudan, accompanied by the Kuwaiti Ambassador to Lebanon Abdel-Aal al-Kinai.
After the meeting, Al-Roudan said that discussions focused on the bilateral relations between the two countries and increasing the trade exchange since the current figures are not up to the ambitions of the two countries.
He added: "An economic team will discuss ways to enhance the volume of exchange between our two countries, which are linked by brotherly relations."
Hariri also met with the director of the Rice University's Baker Institute for Public Policy, former US Ambassador Edward Djerejian, who said after the meeting: "We had a very productive meeting focused on the situation in the region and the good Lebanese-American relations, in addition to what Lebanon faces on the economic level and Prime Minister Hariri's plans to face these burdens."
Hariri then received the Australian Ambassador to Lebanon Rebekah Grindlay.
He met separately with the ambassadors of Lebanon in Ukraine Ali Daher, Algeria Mohamad Hassan and Morocco Ziad Atallah.
