The introduction of a goods and services tax, coupled with cost-cutting measures and a proposed multibillion-dollar loan, is expected to help Bahrain improve its fiscal position and reduce national debt.

Bahrain has benefitted from a series of reforms aimed at increasing foreign direct investment (FDI), recording a strong jump in inflows in 2017.

Bahrain has moved to improve its start-up ecosystem as part of plans to further diversify the economy, launching a new funding and training initiative specifically targeting entrepreneurs and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

Although Bahrain has faced economic headwinds in recent years, the modest recovery of oil prices in 2017 bodes well for the future in addition to the non-oil sector driving growth, with activities unrelated to hydrocarbons extraction forecast to expand by 3.9% in 2018.
