Bahrain PM calls for more specialised expos
Manama, February 10, 2014
Bahrain's Premier has called for more specialised exhibitions - like last week's hugely successful Gulf Industry Fair, which was held under his patronage.
He recommended more incentives and facilities to attract such expos to Bahrain, said a report in the Gulf Daily News (GDN), our sister publication.
The Premier congratulated organisers of Gulf Industry Fair 2014, Hilal Conferences and Exhibitions, a subsidiary of Bahrain's Al Hilal Group.
He also singled out the Autumn Fair which drew large crowds.
In other developments, Bahrain's Cabinet also vowed to protect the nation from hate-mongering and incitement.
The pledge came as Bahrain prepares to celebrate the 13th anniversary of the National Action Charter, approved by a sweeping majority of the voters on February 14, 2001.
The weekly Cabinet meeting extended congratulations to His Majesty King Hamad on this national anniversary.
Chaired by His Royal Highness Prime Minister Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa, the session described the milestone as being a roadmap for a bright future.
His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Crown Prince, Deputy Supreme Commander and First Deputy Premier, attended.
The session paid tribute to the King for initiating the project to promote Bahrain's prosperity and ensure citizens' rights.
It stressed the need to celebrate the anniversary as a national milestone unifying all Bahrainis.
The ministers underlined the importance of building a society that achieves all that citizens aspire to - tolerance, cohesion, social stability and civil peace.
"The pursuit of reform and development requires initiatives that protect society from hate-mongering and the ostracisation and rejection of others," said the Cabinet.
It stressed the need to steer away from incitement and dubious calls to destabilise Bahrain's security and stability.
"The National Action Charter will always be a framework bringing all Bahrainis together to achieve their hopes of reform, freedom and decent living standards," it said. - TradeArabia News Service
