Bahrain economy poised for growth
Manama, January 5, 2013
The traders and businesswomen in Bahrain expect the economy to grow substantially this year, said a report by our sister paper Akhbar Al Khaleej.
The programmes sponsored by Bahrain labour fund Tamkeen benefiting the small and medium enterprises have enabled the national economy to withstand challenges, the report stated.
The $10 billion GCC Marshall Plan will boost public spending and accelerate the growth of the national economy, said the report.
Meanwhile, brokers cast doubts on the ability of Bahrain Bourse and other GCC exchanges to improve their performance in light of continuous political upheavals in the region, Iranian belligerence and the euro zone crisis, it added.-TradeArabia News Service
