The Bahrain British Business Forum (BBBF) has bid farewell to one of its founding members, Dr Joseph Dunn, who has departed Bahrain after 30 years.
Dr Dunn’s departure was facilitated by another member company, KAR Travel & Tours, in collaboration with the British Embassy and the BBBF. The BBBF extended its thanks and gratitude to KAR Travel & Tours for their extensive support and assistance to another member. Dr Dunn has been endeavouring to return to the UK without success until for a number of years.
Dr Khalid Abdulrahim, Chairman of KAR Group, said: “In Bahrain business, our networks and support for one another, during good times and bad, are vital. We were very happy on this occasion to step up to assist another BBBF member. We wish Dr Joe all the best for this next chapter and his new ventures in the UK”.
BBBF Deputy Chair Paula Boast said: “I know you will all join me in congratulating Dr Dunn on his recent return to the UK. As one of the longest standing BBBF members, indeed a founding member over 26 years ago, he has contributed significantly over the years to the success and longevity of the forum. We extend our sincere thanks and appreciation to another long standing BBBF member, Dr Khalid Abdulrahim and KAR Group, for their assistance and support which has resulted in what will be a new chapter and, no doubt, new ventures for Dr Joe.”
The BBBF was set up in 1995 and has grown to over 470 members today. It aims to promote trade and investment between Bahrain and Britain in a non-discriminatory, non-political and non-profit making manner. The BBBF is widely recognised in Bahrain and the UK as a leading impartial business sector group. The forum works to create and sustain a favourable business environment. The BBBF strives to assist and introduce new trade and investment to both countries to benefit and enhance the common economic interests of our member companies.
BBBF’s Special Interest Groups (SIGs) cover hospitality and tourism, projects and construction, banking & financial services, ICT and legal sectors; oil, gas and energy, as well as women in business and young professionals, providing members and guests a valued medium for exchanging industry specific ideas and discussing issues relevant to a particular sector.
