Chairman’s Message

Khalid-Rashid-Al Zayani-OBE_BBBF-ChairmanSince its foundation, the mission of the BBBF has been clear and consistent:

To promote trade, investment and meaningful business relationships between Bahrain and the UK in a non-profit making, non-political and non-discriminatory manner.

The BBBF has played an important role within Bahrain; highlighting key sectors, exploring new directions and providing an instant network platform for new arrivals.

In looking ahead, we are determined to maintain and enhance our reputation as the key business Forum in the Gulf, promoting Bahrain as the regional centre from which to conduct business throughout the Middle East. However, a large part of our success depends upon encouraging growth in the depth and breadth of our membership. This, coupled with the vision and drive of the committee will enable us to provide more opportunities for networking and the development of long-term business relationships between members as well as with external partners.

Membership is open on both an individual and corporate basis to business people of any nationality who wish to promote the exchange of trade and services between Bahrain and Britain, whether resident in Bahrain or not.

With this in mind, I would encourage you to browse our site and consider how membership, or access to our network of members, may be beneficial to you.

Khalid Rashid Al Zayani OBE
