After weathering a series of global and regional challenges in recent years, Bahrain is emerging from the Covid-19 pandemic with strong growth, rising government revenue and a new plan for the future economy.
As energy and tourism earnings recover, the kingdom aims to generate sustainable long-term growth opportunities through new sector strategies and transformational infrastructure projects.
A revival in transport and tourism after two years of pandemic-related slowdowns caused by closed borders and social-distancing measures is helping to boost the economy, with the kingdom’s hotels, restaurants and resorts once again open to regional and international visitors. The country’s guiding plan, Bahrain Economic Vision 2030, aims to enhance private sector growth and continue government investment in infrastructure, affordable housing, human resource development and digital transformation.
The kingdom maintains a developed industrial sector and hosts the world’s largest single-site aluminium smelter outside of China, Aluminium Bahrain, with downstream businesses creating products for export. Other industries in Bahrain include downstream oil and gas and ICT, with segments such as data analytics, cloud computing, storage and business process outsourcing expanding rapidly.
