Bahrain (Al Bahrayn)


KSA

Bahrain has highly developed communication and transport facilities, and is home to numerous multinational firms with business in the Gulf. Petroleum production and refining underpin Bahrain's strong economic growth in recent years. Aluminium is Bahrain's second major export after oil. Other major segments of Bahrain's economy are the financial and construction sectors. Bahrain is focused on Islamic banking and is competing on an international scale with Malaysia as a worldwide banking centre. Bahrain is actively pursuing the diversification and privatization of its economy to reduce the country's dependence on oil.
