Bahrain has been ranked amongst the world’s top 15 most economically free nations. The hospitality sector in the Kingdom has been developing at a fast pace to meet the growing needs of the tourism industry. Bahrain’s Hospitality & Tourism industry is poised to grow at 7.6% in 2018 thus contributing to increased human resource development and training in the hospitality, travel and tourism sector.
With an expat population equaling to one fifth of the country’s total population, Bahrain testifies to the fact that expat life can be very accommodating. However, the significant numbers of expats moving to Bahrain will fast find themselves living the high-life, loving the low-slung sea shores, and enjoying the medium-blend of modernity.
