Investment opportunities in Bahrain highlighted

Bahrain British Business Forum (BBBF) held its first business networking event of 2017 with Dr. Simon Galpin, Managing Director of the Bahrain Economic Development Board (EDB), as the keynote speaker. The meeting was chaired by the BBBF Chairman Mr. Khalid Al Zayani OBE, who welcomed Dr. Galpin, and almost 200 BBBF members and guests to the meeting at the Gulf Hotel yesterday.

In his address Dr. Galpin highlighted the opportunities that are being created around areas such as infrastructure investment, regulatory developments, and innovation and start-ups.

Dr. Simon Galpin said, “There are a range of opportunities being created by Bahrain’s ongoing infrastructure investment programme, through the continued regulatory developments, and from structured efforts aimed at encouraging innovative start-up activity and technological development. The private sector will be the driving factor for growth in the future, and we look forward to working with new and existing investors to highlight some of the existing opportunities.”

Mr. Al Zayani commented: “We are pleased to commence the year with a presentation on a topic that’s on top of everyone’s mind.  Since its establishment, the BBBF’s aim has been to promote trade and investment between Bahrain and Britain, and to create and sustain a favourable business environment. We are happy to support the EDB’s efforts in whichever way we can, as we share the same goals.”

“On behalf of the BBBF, I would like express our appreciation and sincere thank you to Dr. Galpin for his enlightening presentation. I would also like to thank our extremely supportive British Ambassador, H.E. Simon Martin and the rest of the team at the Embassy for their steadfast support”.
