The theme of the Entrepreneurs Investment Forum is “To Achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)”, in line with Bahrain Economic Vision 2030 to help boost the country’s economic development and diversification. The forum aims at
- a) Providing a platform for entrepreneurs in order to attract international and local joint investments, collaboration and trade facilitation
- b) Introducing globally recognized practices for innovation in local businesses.
- c) Supporting and enhancing the role of women entrepreneurs in industry.
This forum is expected to take the vision of His Excellency Sheikh Hisham Bin Abdulrahman Al Khalifa much further as his office has been investing their efforts in organizing several events and initiatives in order to elevate local employment level as well as to help the younger generation gain from the valuable exchange of knowledge, ideas and networking, and bring out their potential for creativity in their chosen fields.
The previous editions of the forum had been very popular with the young Bahraini youth and they learnt a great deal from the prominent lecturers and industry insiders who shared their insight at numerous workshops and seminars. The third edition is also expected to receive great following by the youth and help equip them with necessary skills and tools required to succeed in the business world and contribute to the kingdom’s well-being in return.
