A total of 45 Bahraini graduates will be trained over three years in international companies through a new Tamkeen initiative.
The International Interships Programme was set up in an agreement between Aiesec in Bahrain and Tamkeen.
It will provide an opportunity for 15 young male and female graduates each year to be trained in major companies and institutions worldwide.

The programme offers an opportunity for young Bahrainis to develop their potential and improve their chances in the labour market through expertise gained on an international level, said Dr Al Shaikh.
