Bahrain will continue to follow an ambitious infrastructure investment plan in order to increase capacity within its key freight sectors. This falls in line with the government's strategic vision for 2030, which will aim to promote trade in the region and stimulate economic growth. The measures will contribute to steady growth across its freight modes over the medium term to 2020, with the road transport sector in particular benefitting from infrastructure investment and industry diversification in the country.

Real growth in GDP looks set to slow marginally in 2016, though oil prices are starting to recover slightly from recent drops. Healthy growth in the non-oil sector will have a positive impact on freight transport as demand from other industries will boost growth. Bahrain's political situation and its impact on economic stability will be under scrutiny in 2016 as the government continues to forge a path of economic recovery through investment and trade reforms.
