Located at the heart of the Middle East, Bahrain is a major regional and international financial and commercial centre. With a liberal attitude to foreign business allied to an open-door policy, the islands are home to some 200 banks and a range of well-known international companies that have selected this country as their regional base. Bahrain seeks to enhance its already prominent position within the region by constructing a new port, developing major tourist sites and encouraging increased world-wide investment in industry and commerce. This text will provide business people with information on the country's market, as well as analysis on those matters important to business success.
