The Rise of China and the Future of Kuwaiti-Chinese Relations: From Cooperation to Strategic Partnership

Auther : Nasser Alajmi

The aim of this research is to explore the prospects of the relationship that holds between Kuwait and China since 1971. The previous literature on this issue had focused on the political, historical and economic bilateral relationship, while this research will mainly focus on the following questions:What will the future of the relationship between China and Kuwait look like? What factors will stimulate strategic partnership? How can China's rise affect the bilateral relationship between these two countries? What are the existing indicators of partnership and the obstacles facing the strategic partnership? This research found that the future of the strategic partnership between these two countries can be anticipated using some existing indicators. The future of the bilateral relations can be noted, measured and anticipated by China's political and economic future strength in the global system. Furthermore, since Kuwait is regarded as one of the biggest sourcesof energy providing to China, China may tend to strengthen its current relation to protect its national security. In addition, Kuwait took a major step towards strengthening this strategic partnership with China by joining China's giant and strategic project "One Road One Belt". Also, Kuwait has recently emphasized its commitment to this partnership by starting to build the "Silk City". Moreover, the strategic dialogue forum between China and the GCC states, which include Kuwait, and its outcomes reinforced the relationship between those countries. Perhaps the most significant limitations of such partnership are manifested by the poor level of communication and the lack of military-security cooperation.
Keywords: The Rise of China, Kuwaiti Chinese Relations, Strategic Partnership.
