Economic Freedom in Bahrain
September 25, 2012 § Leave a comment
Last week, the Fraser Institute released an update to its annual rankings of the world’s freest economies. I was very proud to read that Bahrain came in at #7 on this year’s list, ahead of economic powers such as the United States and Japan.
Although Bahrain has experienced unrest over the past 20 months, our economy remains resilient. Under the leadership of His Royal Highness, Crown Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Bahrain has developed and implemented a forward-thinking plan for economic development in Bahrain. Bahrain is an excellent place to do business because of minimal government regulations, zero corporate taxes, and a highly capable and highly educated domestic work force. Reports like these provide great validation to the hard work of so many people and provide a reminder that Bahrain remains a great place for foreign direct investment.
I would encourage anyone interested in learning more about doing business in Bahrain to get in touch with my office directly.
