Introduction from Mohamed Ismail, Country Director of the Department for International Trade Bahrain
The Department for International Trade is committed to securing UK prosperity by promoting international trade and investment. Our focus is on working closely with UK companies to promote goods and services that have the potential to succeed internationally. Strong export numbers are one of the key indicators of a healthy economy and the UK maintains an excellent reputation for quality goods and services in Bahrain, evidenced by the strong bilateral trade figures.
Based in the British Embassy in Bahrain, our DIT team is represented by three people covering major sectors and opportunities in support of UK companies. We work with our networks across the UK, sector specialists in DIT’s HQ and colleagues across the MEAP region to best seize available opportunities for UK companies.
Through our Overseas Market Introduction Service (OMIS), we provide market access support, country and sector-specific business advice, as well as targeted in-country visits to export ready UK companies.
Bahrain is a unique market, small in size, but the opportunities much larger. It is a country in which relationships are key to successful business and a long-term establishment approach will open various financial and other support schemes within the Bahraini system. Bahrain has worked diligently to open up the economy to international investment and be seen as a viable entry point for international companies to then look further across the region.
I look forward to continue working with potential UK exporters and the Institute of Export & International Trade to highlight the best of our UK goods and services. If you would like our support in developing your entry into the Bahrain market, please do not hesitate to get in touch to discuss the options available.
