    is it correct to say this !?

    Your kind assistance and cooperation is very much appreciated.

    Welcome to the forum, Ali.

    Please note my corrections to your punctuation etc.

    As assistance and cooperation are very closely connected in this context, you can consider them to be a single unit and use is.

    Although are is correct too.

    You need to put quotes around examples. Like English Freak, I also read this as part of your question, and was wondering where your example was.

    Everyone: Put quotes around example sentences and words.
