Bahrain means Business

As one of the Middle East’s most progressive countries and friendly environments in which to do business, Bahrain has become the destination of choice for companies operating in the region.

Centrally located in the Arabian Gulf, Bahrain is midway between east and west time zones and offers ease of access to the world’s major business markets.   As a member of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), comprising Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, it is also part of one of the fastest growing markets in the world and one which has become increasingly significant to the global economy in recent times.

To maintain its highly competitive edge, Bahrain has encouraged foreign investment across a broad range of sectors, which have continued to expand and grow rapidly. Reforms and improvements have been made to strengthen the private sector, making Bahrain an attractive location for enterprises who are considering expansion overseas. Furthermore, with lower operating costs than its neighbours, along with the benefits of superb transport infrastructure and tax free benefits, it’s easy to see why.

The Bahrain International Investment Park (BIIP)

BIO is situated within one of the region’s most exclusive industrial parks – The Bahrain International Investment Park - which offers a number of unique services and benefits. These include a dedicated onsite customs unit, dedicated assistance from an on-site professional management team as well as other incentives including duty free access to the Gulf and Middle East markets. As the BIIP is not a free zone, but an integral part of the GCC, products manufactured at BIIP and sold into the GCC and other Arab markets will be free of import duties. This represents a 5% margin against free zone locations.

Developed by the Ministry of Industry and Commerce, BIIP spans 2,470,000 sq m and has been designed to attract export orientated companies in manufacturing and internationally traded services, with high value projects that will contribute to creating a world class industrial environment.

High profile and well known local and international companies have already set up bases at BIIP either as their regional headquarters or their Middle-Eastern manufacturing arm.
