Bahrain was the first country in the region to diversify away from oil and gas 40 years ago. Very early on, we set in motion a series of initiatives to encourage industry sectors which can offer significant investment potential, based on Bahrain’s natural and human resources, global market trends and regional demands.
Our overall economic strategy is focused on the creation of high-quality jobs in skilled and sustainable industries.
We now have an established track record in a number of key sectors, with new sectors developing all the time. These sectors are financial services, manufacturing, business & professional services, information & communication technology and logistics.
Other sectors such as tourism, education and training and pharmaceuticals are also growing rapidly in Bahrain.
