OBG gets new Bahrain director
Manama, January 14, 2014
Oxford Business Group (OBG), a global publishing, research and consultancy firm, has appointed Loida Peral as its new country director for Bahrain.
In her new role, Peral will work alongside the group’s editorial manager, Ed Gregory, to produce 'The Report: Bahrain 2014," the forthcoming report on the Kingdom’s economy from OBG.
Peral moves to her post from Peru, where she helped compile the group’s latest investment guide to the South American country. Over the past decade, she has carved out a career in communications and public relations which has taken her across the globe to oversee projects in Africa, Asia, the Gulf and the Americas.
Welcoming her to Bahrain, OBG regional director Jana Treeck said: "We are thrilled to have Peral on board during what promises to be an eventful year for OBG’s Bahrain team. She joins us as we prepare to mark our tenth anniversary of operations in the Kingdom."
Treeck said: “Bahrain’s efforts to boost growth at the Kingdom’s new industrial zones and its status as one of the world’s leading centres for Islamic finance are just some of the many developments which we will be analysing during the coming months. I am delighted that Peral will be contributing to our anniversary publication and playing a part in marking our milestone achievement.”
Peral said OBG’s decade of reports on Bahrain had served to illustrate the many changes taking place in the Kingdom, while highlighting others that were on the way.
“Bahrain has channelled its efforts into bringing through emerging sectors of the economy, and is supporting its longer term ambitions by focusing on educational reforms and skills provision,” she remarked.
"I look forward to meeting the people who are involved in driving these changes forward and reflecting on what represents an important juncture in our operations across the Gulf," she added.
The Report: Bahrain 2014 will mark the culmination of over six months of on-the-ground research by OBG’s team.
It will provide information on opportunities for foreign direct investment into Bahrain’s economy and act as a guide to the country’s many facets, including its macroeconomics, infrastructure, banking and sectorial developments.-TradeArabia News Service
