Public Debt in Bahrain

Bahrain Public Debt | Economic News & Forecasts

Bahrain - Public Debt

The economy softened in the third quarter, driven by a contraction in the mining and quarrying sector, although this was partially offset by faster growth in the financial sector. Turning to the fourth quarter, the economy likely performed poorly due to a sharp fall in crude oil prices from mid-October. More positively, foreign reserves rose in November, likely boosted by financial support from Gulf neighbors. Meanwhile, in the political arena, the 2019-2022 Government Action Plan received parliament’s stamp of approval in late January. The plan targets growth in the non-oil sector of the economy and aims to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of public spending.
