Bahrain, His Royal Highness the Prince meets Italian companies

Yesterday, 4 February, an important business meeting was held at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in Rome with the presence of His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Crown Prince, Deputy Supreme Commander and First Vice Prime Minister of Bahrain.

On this day seven agreements were signed between private companies in the Kingdom of Bahrain and Italian, for a total value of around 330 million €.

The goals achieved during this meeting are the fruits of the close collaboration between Confindustria Assafrica & Mediterraneo and the Economic development board of Bahrain.

Giovanni Ottati, President of Assafrica & Mediterraneo says that “There has never been such a wide opening by an industrial system of the Gulf countries towards Italian industry. It is the most powerful delegation that Confindustria Assafrica & Mediterraneo has ever received to date.

In addition to the Crown Prince of Bahrain, the country’s main financial and economic ministers were present, as well as the decision makers of most public and private companies in Bahrain.
