Baytik Industrial Oasis participated in the 2008 GCC Europe Expo that concluded its two-day show recently in London, as part of an exclusive opportunity to highlight its potential and the opportunities its offering.

The event was first of its kind and was aimed at facilitating bilateral trade and investment, and forging potentially thousands of new commercial relationships between EU and GCC businesses. The event was sponsored by the Bahrain Economic Development Board ('EDB').

The Expo, which was staged on November 12 and 13 in London included over 150 companies. On the fringe of the Expo, a two-day seminar program was also arranged featuring specific European and GCC Country Regional Zones.

Britain's Prime Minister Gordon Brown delivered a personalized video message of support at the opening ceremony. Baytik Industrial Oasis, is a state-of-the-art industrial park at Bahrain International Investment Park (BIIP) in Hidd, Kingdom of Bahrain.

The project, a first of its kind in the Kingdom of Bahrain, aims to drive further economic diversification in the industrial sector, generating greater inward investment and stimulating job creation in Bahrain by capitalising on the ongoing expansion in the industrial sector and fast growing demand for industrial based real-estate projects in Bahrain. The project extends over an area of 154,400 m².
