A Bahraini delegation is due to be in Berlin to take part in the 16th Arab German Economic Forum, which will take place between Wednesday and Friday.
The forum is organised by the Arab-German Chamber for Commerce and Industry and the General Union of Arab Chambers of Commerce.
This year's forum, sponsored by Bahrain, will focus on the economic environment and investment opportunities in the kingdom, reported the Gulf Daily News, our sister publication.
A high-level delegation will represent Bahrain, including officials from the Economic Development Board, the e-Government Authority, Bahrain Mumtalakat Holding Company, Works Ministry, Culture Ministry, Bahrain Logistics Zone and the Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry, in addition to Bahraini businessmen.
The delegation will meet their peers from Germany and neighbouring countries, such as Austria and Switzerland.
With the participation of around 500 delegates every year, the forum represents an opportunity to discuss investment opportunities between the Arab and European countries.
"We are keen on raising awareness about the trade and economic environment in Bahrain amongst German and European businessmen by participating in this event," said EDB acting chief executive Kamal Ahmed.
"The delegation will highlight investment opportunities available to international companies, both in Bahrain and the wider Gulf market," stated Ahmed.
"It is a great opportunity to shed light on the competitive economic climate in Bahrain, which has always attracted German and international companies over the years, which further enhanced the economy, by creating job opportunities for Bahrainis," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
