Bahrain - GDP

Despite healthy activity in the non-oil sector and buoyant infrastructure spending mostly related to the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Development Fund, overall, economic growth is faltering due to a combination of low oil production and subdued crude prices. This situation is negatively impacting fiscal performance, as oil accounts for over 85% of budget revenues, leaving the government’s finances in a precarious situation. External accounts are also feeling the brunt of falling crude revenues, with reserves hovering at risky levels despite the issuance of a USD 600 million bond sale late in February. Against this backdrop, the government is planning to launch a new U.S. dollar-denominated issue as early as this month.
