Tamkeen helps firms to take part in show
Manama, January 16, 2012
Tamkeen contributed BD26,627 ($70,816) through its ‘Tarweej’ scheme to enable 14 Bahraini enterprises to showcase their products and services at the Bahrain International Garden Show 2012.
The event which began yesterday (January 15) and will run till January 18, is being held under the patronage of HM King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa.
It was officially opened by Princess Sabeeka bint Ibrahim Al Khalifa, said a statement.
Tarweej is one of several schemes offered by Tamkeen under the enterprise development support programme, and a co-financing scheme designed to make them sustainable by increasing the reach of their products and services through participation in local and regional trade exhibitions – such as Bigs.
“The landscaping and agricultural sector in Bahrain is one of the key sectors which we have targeted for development through our programmes, and our support in previous editions of this important event has yielded positive returns for the benefiting enterprises,” said Tamkeen's chief executive, Mahmood Hashem Al Kooheji. “This year we have increased the number of companies supported by 75 percent to allow more businesses to capitalise on this opportunity.”
Tamkeen’s support covers 80 percent of the total cost of participation, including space rental, and design, production, and installation of stands for local events. Airfare, cargo, and accommodation costs are included for exhibitions held abroad. – TradeArabia News Service
