Business Profile

 

 

Bahrain Business Profile

Statistics

• GDP: US$11.6 billion (2005 estimate).
• Main exports: Petroleum and petroleum products, aluminum and textiles.
• Main imports: Crude oil, machinery and chemicals.
• Main trade partners: USA, Korea (Rep), Saudi Arabia, Japan, UK and Germany.

Economy

Oil dominates Bahrain’s economy and, together with gas and petrochemicals, accounts for the bulk of exports and government revenue. That proportion is falling, however, as Bahrain seeks to diversify its economy and the reserves dwindle.

Several successful industrial projects, including aluminium production, an iron-ore processing facility and an ammonia-methanol plant, have been set up.

In the service sector, the financial services industry has expanded dramatically in recent years, as companies trading in the region have set up their regional centres in Bahrain, where the relatively relaxed environment is an important factor in a region where rigorous social mores are often the norm.

In September 2004, a Free Trade Pact was signed with the USA. However, Saudi Arabia condemned the move, saying it hindered regional economic integration.

Business Etiquette

Businessmen are expected to wear suits and ties. Business must be done on a personal introduction basis. Normal social courtesies should be observed but introductions and greetings are important and polite conversation is expected before business discussions begin. Bargaining is common practice: Arabs regard their word as their bond and expect others to do the same. The best time to visit is October to April.

Office hours: Sun-Thurs 0800-1300 and 1500-1730 or 0800-1530.
