Transport

Bahrain 2020 - Transport

With investment rising despite subdued recent growth, Bahrain’s transport sector remains an important and dynamic non-oil growth driver. With passenger and cargo volumes rising across its roads, port and airport, Bahrain’s transport sector is set to benefit greatly from its sweeping infrastructure development agenda. Although many big-ticket projects, including a new airport, metro system and the King Hamad Causeway, are years away from completion, the kingdom has made significant recent progress in launching and resuming critical transport projects to address the issue of congestion. Rising investment across the sector and Bahrain’s efforts to leverage its geographic position will further support long-term expansion, putting sector on track to achieving its 2030 targets. This chapter contains interviews with Kamal bin Ahmed Mohammed, Minister of Transportation and Telecommunications; and Mohamed Yousif Al Binfalah, CEO, Bahrain Airport Company.
