Bahrain - Public Debt

Bahrain remains in a pickle. The public debt-to-GDP ratio continues to soar, reaching 86.6% at the end of Q2, and has now more than doubled in the space of just four years. Short-term bond yields spiked further in the same quarter, signaling investors’ concerns over the weak fiscal and external positions. In addition, foreign reserves remained low in Q2 despite a slight increase from Q1; at the end of June, foreign reserves totaled USD 2.2 billion, covering less than two months of imports. On 15 August, Gulf Cooperation Council finance ministers met to discuss a fiscal balance program for Bahrain, although concrete details of the aid package have yet to be announced.
