Ali Abdulwahab Al Mutawa Commercial Co. (AAW) announced that Chairman and Managing Director of AAW, Mr. Faisal Ali Abdulwahab Al Mutawa met with French Ambassador to Kuwait, HE Christian Nakhlé, Michel Boivin, Head of the Economic Department and Rabih Soufangi, Economic Attaché, at AAW’s headquarters and together discussed enhancing business ties with France’s pharmaceutical industry to further advance the healthcare sector in Kuwait.

During the visit, Al-Mutawa and Nakhlé spoke of several business prospects that could potentially expand AAW’s pharmaceutical business in the future and include other trade opportunities to further introduce French medical and beauty equipment and products to the Kuwait market.

French Ambassador to Kuwait, Mr. Christian Nakhlé, said, “For many years, France has made outstanding medical advancements that has helped millions of people around the world and driven industrial growth in France. France is technology-driven with hundreds of well-resourced facilities covering a wide-range of pharmaceutical technologies and products.

We thank Mr. Nakhlé and look forward to partnering with more French companies in the near future.”

AAW runs one of Kuwait’s most successful wholesale and retail pharmaceutical sales operations, and is one of the primary suppliers to the Ministry of Health and private hospitals in the country. AAW has also partnered with a network of pharmacies in Kuwait, enabling further market penetration and dominance of products.
