Communications are at the heart of everything we do.
Trust and confidence of our shareholders and the people of Bahrain can only be achieved through maintaining the highest levels of transparency. Our corporate communications team helps drive our reputation locally and globally through different channels by communicating with all stakeholders in a timely, accurate and consistent fashion, in order to generate confidence amongst our stakeholders, which ultimately supports our business and investments objectives.
Key milestones in 2016:
We continued to engage in various prominent business conferences and media opportunities that support our investments, enhance visibility and raise awareness of our investment focus.
With the increasing demand for logistics services, we took part in the 1st GCC Logistics Conference which was held in March 2016 where we engaged with key stake-holders and potential partners within the sector. In line with our investment interests our active participations included the Euromoney GCC financial forum, SPIEF 2016 St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, 8th International Economic Summit of Russia and OIC countries, the Middle East Investment Summit, MuMac 2016 Cross Border Mergers & Acquisitions Conference and INSEAD’S Global Business Leaders Conference amongst others.
As a key driver in the Kingdom’s economic development, we supported our wholly owned subsidiary, Bahrain International Circuit (BIC) through our participation at the 2016 Formula 1 Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix. Our involvement was spearheaded by the corporate communications team, with a presence at the Paddock Club, a key component of the F1, in order to give our partners an experience of the Formula 1 Bahrain Grand Prix and a taste of Bahrain’s culture as a whole while developing further business opportunities.
We uphold our commitment to sound governance, both amongst ourselves, and our portfolio companies. That is why we continued our training for our directors and the representative directors appointed to the boards of our portfolio companies in partnership with INSEAD.
