Business environment in Bahrain

Bahrain’s economy is amongst the most diversified in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), with a higher share of services and manufacturing sectors in gross domestic product (GDP). The country has a heavy subsidy system in place, weighing against it reaching its targeted fiscal balance, and continues to rely on Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) for financial support. This will encourage investors to keep lending funds to finance Bahrain’s debt on capital markets.
