GDP in Bahrain
Bahrain - GDPDespite the lack of data regarding the second half of 2016, there are grounds for believing that the non-oil sector continued to expand. Progress continued to be made with key infrastructure projects which are projected to amount to USD 32 billion of investment in total, such as the oil pipeline connecting Bahrain to Saudi Arabia and the Alba smelter expansion, among others. This acted as a counter-cyclical growth driver and will have stimulated the economy, which has been in the doldrums due to the weak oil market last year. Strong infrastructure investment has been made possible by support from the GCC Development Fund.
