A new initiative, ‘Made in Bahrain’ aimed at promoting local products in the regional and international markets has been launched by Industry, Commerce and Tourism Minister, HE Zayed Alzayani. The ‘Made in Bahrain’ logo features the national flag and can be used on commercial registrations (CRs) or to label Bahraini products. The move looks at developing domestic exports and ensuring that Bahraini products and services are promoted and recognised in international markets. The minister said: “This will upgrade the quality of Bahraini exports and position us as a global industrial player, with the manufacturing sector currently representing about 14.5 per cent of the gross domestic product.” He added that the project will also increase dependency on local industries and help achieve self-sufficiency and food security. The mark will be granted to local factories licensed by the ministry which manufacture products containing 35-per-cent or more of domestic content.
