Premier affirms support to businessmen
(Manama) – His Royal Highness Prime Minister Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa has directed Bahraini businessmen to work with their counterparts in Asian countries to make Bahrain a centre for the distribution of Asian products in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries.
He also underlined the government’s keenness on removing all obstacles and ensuring easy procedures for businessmen and investors in order to encourage the launch of joint Bahraini-Asian ventures, in general, and Bahraini-Thai, in particular.
While receiving the Bahraini business delegation taking part in the Asia Cooperation Dialogue (ACD) summit at his residence in Bangkok, HRH the Premier stressed the need to broaden cooperation between the Kingdom and Asian countries, and make optimum advantage of Asian countries’ huge potentials to launch strong economic partnerships that support Bahrain’s development efforts and contribute to upgrading the national economy at all levels.
Southeast Asian countries’ economic successes and their ability to set a global development model constitute a unique experience that should be emulated, he said, calling for drawing inspiration from that experience by applying the distinguished elements on the Bahraini economy to consolidate its sustainable growth ability.
