The agreement between the two countries will mainly be for training purposes. Mohammed said it was just the initial stage. “The government will send some Bahrainis to be trained in India from January for eight weeks, to study how they can design and build satellites. Bahrain is also looking at forging closer economic ties with India to attract investment and tech companies.
The minister said they were in continuous discussions with the private sector, CII and Bahrain Economic Development Board (EDB) to promote Bahrain and attract foreign investment.
Bahrain regards India as an important market because it will become one of the superpowers in terms of economy. Mohammed said Indian companies are becoming bigger, they are expanding outside India. “The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries offer them the best opportunity.”
