The Hindi programme will be broadcast on Kuwait Radio on FM 93.3 and AM 96.3 every Sunday.

Praising the country's Ministry of Information for taking the step, Indian Embassy in Kuwait wrote on X: "Start of first ever Hindi Radio broadcast in Kuwait!"

"Embassy of India expresses appreciation to @MOInformation for starting a Hindi programme on Kuwait Radio on FM 93.3 and AM 96.3 on every Sunday (8.30-9 pm) starting 21 April 2024, a step that will further strengthen ," the Embassy said.

India-Kuwait relationship

As per the website of the Indian Embassy in Kuwait, both the nations enjoy traditionally 'friendly relations, which are rooted in history and have stood the test of time'.

India has been a natural trading partner of Kuwait and until 1961 Indian Rupee was the legal tender in Kuwait.

"Till the discovery and development of oil, Kuwait’s economy revolved around its fine harbour and maritime activities which included ship building, pearl diving, fishing and voyages to India on wooden dhows carrying dates, Arabian horses and pearls that were traded for wood, cereals, clothes and spices. The year 2021-22 marked 60th anniversary of establishment of diplomatic relations between two countries," the website said.

The Indian community is the largest expatriate community in Kuwait of 9.78 lakh or 11,722 million (9,77,897 as per statistics released by Ministry of Interior of Kuwait on 27 March 2023).
