Business Monitor International's Bahrain Freight Transport Report provides industry professionals and strategists, corporate analysts, freight transportation associations, government departments and regulatory bodies with independent forecasts and competitive intelligence on Bahrain's freight transportation industry.

For the time being, BMI is happy to stick to its projections which see Bahrain's real GDP expanding 1.3% in 2012. BMI expects throughput growth at the country's ports to exceed this, though BMI cautions that any further escalations of political violence could stymie growth. Developments at the country's maritime facilities are moving them forward. The plan to re-establish Mina Salman as a commercial port has moved a step closer to fruition, with bids sought for the operation of a building materials terminal there.
