Bahrain: new regulation to attract investment
New rules providing 100% foreign ownership will boost investment in Bahrain.
The Kingdom of Bahrain is implementing comprehensive changes to its corporate laws and procedures, making it easier to set up and conduct business in Bahrain. These changes will provide for a simplified incorporation of businesses, streamline the company administration processes and ease the restrictions on full foreign ownership.
A series of new laws and amendments have been introduced over the last 24 months to modernize and streamline the regulatory regime, enhance corporate governance and increase accountability, empower shareholders and facilitate foreign participation in Bahrain companies. They are designed to promote entrepreneurship in this Gulf country and encourage foreign investors to choose Bahrain as a destination of choice for doing business in the region.
