Drive to make Bahrain investment hub
Manama, January 27, 2014
Bahrain's Premier has asserted that the government has spearheaded an economic programme to make Bahrain a favourable destination for foreign investment - convincing local businessmen to invest national capital in the country.
His Royal Highness Prime Minister Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa lauded traders and businessmen who are basing their operations in their homeland to support the development march led by the government in all fields, said a report in the Gulf Daily News (GDN), our sister publication.
"We express all appreciation to them, and the nation will never forget their historic patriotic stances," he said.
The Premier was speaking as he received at Gudaibiya Palace parliament chairman Dr Khalifa Al Dhahrani, Shura Council chairman Ali Saleh Al Saleh and MPs, in the presence of senior officials.
He affirmed that His Majesty King Hamad had succeeded in creating a unique "organisation" of the national framework, which he consolidated by the unanimously-endorsed National Action Charter, and, therefore, "no one will ever accept to go out of such consensus."
The parliament was an outcome of such an "organisation" and the "government will spare no effort to ensure the success of its legislative and supervisory role, and it is always all ears to the issues raised by MPs who speak on behalf of Bahraini people."
The Prime Minister warned of attempts to sow sedition among Bahrainis, who believe in peace and tolerance and live like a family.
He pointed out that dividing Bahraini people represented the "last hope" for all those who seek to spread chaos and violence, which, he stressed, "will never be achieved thanks to the Bahraini people's vigilance, high awareness and full-fledged loyalty to the homeland and its leadership." - TradeArabia News Service
