HE commented on opportunities for Russian companies to invest in Bahrain saying: "Bahrain has almost 30 billion dollars of infrastructure projects planned over the coming years, in a number of sectors, including transportation, housing, industry, energy and healthcare, and Russian expertise can no doubt play a vital role in these ambitious programs."
Giving a keynote at the event, Minister of Industry and Commerce, HE Zayed bin Rashed Al Zayani confirmed the importance and willingness of the government to further develop the Kingdom’s economic relations with various countries of the world, noting that according to UNCTAD, Bahrain Bahrain attracted 989million dollars of foreign investment in 2013, an increase of 11% from the previous year.

The Minister highlighted that the relations between Bahrain and Russia were strengthened following the historic visit of His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa and the visit of His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the Crown Prince, First Deputy Prime Minister and Chairman of the EDB.

HE the Minister added the sustained cooperation and integration in economic policies with the GCC countries and the larger MENA region, and the FTA with the USA, has yielded great benefits for exports originating in Bahrain, from customs exemptions, as well as other bilateral and regional trade preferences and economic integration benefits.
