Inflation in Bahrain

Bahrain Inflation | Economic News & Forecasts

Bahrain - Inflation

Although economic growth was robust last year, weak government finances remain a concern. Fears that the government may lose access to international capital markets saw credit default swaps—the cost of insuring the country’s debt against default—soar in late May. In addition, foreign reserves remain perilously low, despite having risen slightly in April. In a bid to increase the country’s investment attractiveness, the government has begun work on drafting a law creating a renewable 11-year self-sponsorship residency visa for foreign investors. Moreover, 110% foreign ownership might be expanded to include more sectors. In addition, a new subsidy system is currently being discussed with parliament, although it is unclear whether the overall subsidy burden would fall as a result.
