Inflation in Bahrain
Bahrain - InflationThe Bahraini economy rebounded in Q2 chiefly on the back of the non-oil sector, while the oil economy only expanded at a meager rate. The external position remains a worry, however, despite a recovery in international reserves in August on higher oil prices. This should ease market fears over Bahrain’s ability to meet its debt repayments and reduce currency pressures; nevertheless, a sustained improvement in investor sentiment will depend on the details of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) aid package announced in late June. Meanwhile, on the political front, it was announced in late September that Bahrain will hold parliamentary elections in November.
