Manama, February 5, 2014
Bahrain's labour fund Tamkeen said 70 Bahrain-based enterprises taking part in the Gulf Industry Fair 2014, the leading business-to-business (B2B) event in the Northern Gulf, have been supported by its “Tarweej” scheme.
The Tamkeen move comes as part of its efforts to contribute to the growth and development of Bahraini enterprises, said a company official.
"As one of Tamkeen's key support programmes, Tarweej provides enterprises with the opportunity to expand their customer base and promote awareness about their products and services through participation in local, regional, and international exhibitions where Tamkeen offers 80 per cent of the overall participation cost," remarked Mohammed Bucheeri, the VP for private sector support.
To date, more than 7,600 enterprises in Bahrain have benefited from Tamkeen’s Enterprise Development Support Programme (EDS), he stated.
Besides, the 'Tarweej' scheme, the EDS also includes “Istishara” to assist in strategic planning and determining vision and goals of the organisation, the 'Techania' to support purchase of latest enterprise-related tools and equipment, 'Jawda' to assist in the design, application of quality standards, 'Tasweeq' to offer support in design and implementation of effective marketing, and the Legal Services Support Scheme, which provides enterprises with legal support in their commercial transactions, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
