The Supreme Council for Women (SCW) and the Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Tourism (MOICT) have collaborated to reveal a new initiative through “Export Bahrain” to develop and enhance Bahraini exports and promoting their entry into the global markets.

The program will provide Bahraini women-owned projects with facilities and consultations to develop their products and services in order to improve their participation in regional and international trade.

“Bahraini women enjoy a global outlook, and this collaboration will provide confidence and create new outlets of export opportunities for Bahraini women,” he said.

“By utilizing Export Bahrain, women-owned businesses can scale and expand their business into new markets, and tap into global opportunities. Supporting women has always been at the heart of all our endeavors and this collaboration will seek to reinforce these efforts and accelerate growth opportunities for women business owners.

Export Bahrain is a critical national initiative that will push the role of women exporters in the Kingdom by joining their efforts and resources in cooperation with the Supreme Council for Women.”

This newly developed program comes at a very important time in light of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the business sector as a whole, including women-owned projects.
