The Best International Deal Facilitators for Start-up Exporters was awarded to Export Bahrain as part of the Global Business Outlook Awards 2021, which aims to recognise and reward excellence in businesses worldwide.
The award reflects Export Bahrain’s keen efforts to support and enable Bahrain-based SMEs to access new opportunities in global marketplaces. These efforts have resulted in facilitating over USD110 million in export value for Bahrain-based SMEs during the past three years since the inception of Export Bahrain.
This has enabled over 27 percent of the targeted category to tap into new markets abroad and encouraged over 12 percent of SME businesses supported by Export Bahrain to export their products and services for the first time. “Export Bahrain is moving forward to achieve its strategic goals of establishing a healthy exporting ecosystem, capitalising on the Kingdom’s unique location that qualifies it to become a premier export zone in the region,” says Export Bahrain Acting Chief Executive, Safa Sharif Abdulkhaliq.
The award is the second international accolade received by Export Bahrain this year, as the initiative was named the ‘Best company in accelerating the growth of products and services made in Bahrain’ by the Globe Golden Bridge Awards earlier this year.
