Gulf Air – the National carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain – is collaborating yet again with the Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry on a number of the Chamber’s upcoming events in the GCC.
As part of the partnership agreement Gulf Air will be exhibiting in three strategic forums aimed at driving investment to Bahrain. The first forum titled “Invest in Bahrain” will be held in Kuwait on 7 April. This will be followed by the “Eighth International Conference of the International Federation of Commerce Chambers” which will be held in Doha on 22 – 25 April and finally the “Annual Investment Forum 2013” in Dubai on 30 April – 2 May.
Gulf Air’s acting Chief Executive Officer Mr. Maher Salman Al Musallam commented, “As the national carrier, Gulf Air plays an important role as the flying ambassador for the country. We constantly seek new opportunities to promote the Kingdom in the GCC and abroad and we are pleased be able support the Chamber increase business and investment opportunities in Bahrain through these conferences. Traditionally Gulf Air has always had strong relationships with the economic, commercial, and investment entities in Bahrain, and our ongoing strong ties with the Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry reinforce this.”
Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry Chairman Dr. Essam Abdulla Fakhro expressed the Chamber’s appreciation to collaborate with Gulf Air, as the airline’s participation in these important GCC forums will add value to these functions; especially with it being the National carrier and one of the pioneering airlines in the region. Additionally, Dr. Fakhro stated that Gulf Air has always been a leader in supporting local projects and initiatives promoting the economy and position of the Kingdom of Bahrain in different local, regional, and international platforms. He also wished for such collaboration to continue between the Chamber and the private sector to help the economic development of the country.
Gulf Air will be exhibiting with other Bahraini companies including Tamkeen and the Economic Development Board. The exhibitions will provide the airline with an opportunity to showcase its unique products as services and reinforce its position as the region’s most business and family friendly airline.
Gulf Air currently operates one of the largest networks in the Middle East with one of the youngest fleets and best on-time-performance, offering passengers travelling in the region a different value proposition to its competitors.
