Tap the Potential of
Business Friendly Bahrain

Bahrain has strived to position itself as the preferred country of choice for Foreign Direct Investment. As a result, Bahrain is home to a business environment that is constantly evolving, and today, the change that is occurring is leading the Kingdom quickly towards a digital economy. Regulatory reform, investment in new infrastructure, and tech-focused training are among the activities driving this evolution. Within this dynamic environment, investors can benefit from a constant stream of opportunities.

To help them do so, and to facilitate incoming investors, the Bahrain Tender Board was established in 2002 to ensure a fair and transparent process in government tenders. In short, the Tender Board is a conduit between Public Sector authorities and their respective suppliers.

In line with the government’s commitment to digitise services and make the tendering process easier, the Tender Board’s e-portal www.tenderboard.gov.bh allows companies to bid for projects online, setting out the procedure for each contract simply and clearly. Potential contractors can also stay informed of the status of tenders through the site, and gain access to a comprehensive list of tender categories.

The Tender Categories List

Accommodation and food service activities
Administrative and support service activities
Electricity, gas, steam and air conditioning supply
Human health and social work activities
Mining and quarrying
Personal service activities; repair activities
Professional, scientific and technical activities
Real estate activities/administrative and support service activities
Transportation and storage

Sale/trading activities; repair of motor vehicles and motorcycles

Although the Tender Board offers a broad view of the prospects for investors, Bahrain presents a wealth of additional opportunities to capitalise on. From Diyar Al Muharraq in the north to Durrat Al Bahrain in the south, the Kingdom is dotted with major destinations that constantly evolve to satisfy the changing needs of visitors and residents. Covering hospitality, retail, residential and healthcare, such developments reflect Bahrain’s current period of evolution.
