Kuwait : Right for Ceramic Exports
There is an age old relation of the Middle East with Indian Products. Since years, the Indian products have easily and smoothly made inroads into the Middle Eastern markets. Middle East has not always been a great destination or industries to be established and run. Its weather being the main limitation, industrialization has always been restricted. But in the past century, it has emerged as the oil epicenter of the world, which has empowered the Middle East to become rich. This has also helped the countries in Middle East with stable governments to develop very fast.
