Aluminum Bahrain B.S.C. (Alba)’s participation in the two-day Euromoney Bahrain Conference is a clear endorsement of confidence in Alba as an industrial powerhouse and in Bahrain as an investor-friendly destination for both the financial and manufacturing sectors. The Euromoney Bahrain Conference – organized by Euromoney in partnership with the Economic Development Board Bahrain – was held at The Ritz Carlton Bahrain, on March 5 and 6, 2013. The two-day event brought together some of the key discussion makers from both the private and public sector and examined issues related to the wealth management and private banking industry, Bahrain’s macroeconomic strategy and public finances, the development of the financial sector, the financing of the country’s infrastructure needs and the progress of the capital markets. Alba’s Chief Executive, Tim Murray was part of a panel discussion on ‘financing infrastructure in Bahrain’ during which he and the other members of the panel talked about Bahrain’s infrastructure needs and financing of new projects. Commenting on Alba’s participation in The Euromoney Bahrain Conference, Alba’s Chief Executive Officer, Tim Murray said: “Alba’s spectacular growth from a regional pioneer to one of the world’s leading aluminum producers in the space of just forty years has really been a success story for Bahrain. The visionary outlook that has provided the backbone to some of the forward thinking economic policies of the government has allowed the mushrooming of many industries. Alba has certainly benefited from these policies that have given us greater incentive for structural growth, expansion programs and in broadening the reach of our products and services across diverse territories.” Alba also had a stand at the exhibition held at the sidelines of the two-day conference. The stand showcased Alba’s product portfolio, and also offered information on Alba’s environmental commitment, safety policies and adherence to quality, corporate social responsibility initiatives and contribution to Bahrain’s economy.
