"The project offers a wide array of positive economic impacts for the developments currently under construction, as it will generate at least 5,000 jobs of a diverse nature, and will yield approximately $1 billion in order to construct the logistic units, and industrial and commercial showrooms and other establishments," noted Dr Al Bastaki.

"Investment Gateway - Bahrain” offers a bundle of well-rounded solutions for light industrial zones in Bahrain. This comes after thoroughly studying the experiences of the existing industrial zones, and better understanding the needs of industrialists in Bahrain, and particularly to those looking to establish their regional bases in the kingdom," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
