GDP in Bahrain
Bahrain - GDPBahrain’s economy is likely to have continued to expand at a reasonable pace in Q4 2016. Growth should have been buttressed by the non-oil sector, which in recent quarters has picked up some of the slack generated as a result of lower oil export prices. The construction industry in particular looks set to have been pivotal to growth, with a significant spillover effect to other economic sectors as a result of strong economic linkages. Investment in the industry in Q4 was spearheaded by the GCC Development Fund and was especially geared towards real estate, with the awarding of several flagship projects. Construction is proving to be a potent counter-cyclical driver and is helping counteract the effect of ongoing fiscal consolidation efforts on domestic demand.
