    Bahrain Award for Entrepreneurship honours kingdom’s business persons

    Bahrain: Innovation and creativity are vital components to boost employment opportunities for all Bahrainis, His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Crown Prince, Deputy Supreme Commander and Economic Development Board chairman, said yesterday.

    He was speaking as he attended the annual Bahrain Award for Entrepreneurship ceremony. 

    The award celebrates the achievements of the kingdom’s entrepreneurs.

    The Crown Prince said the government’s efforts to facilitate entrepreneurship underline Bahrain’s firm commitment to promote the foundations of hope and opportunity for all.

    He said that Bahrain identified economic diversification as a key driver of growth and employment opportunities over a decade ago, and that this recognition laid the groundwork for a new phase of economic reforms that prioritised the role of the private sector in driving economic growth and providing entrepreneurial opportunities.

    Bahrain recognises that its economic and fiscal reforms must continue to progress at a swift pace, to continue providing an economic environment that fosters opportunities and enables sustainable growth, he added.

    Tamkeen chairman Shaikh Mohammed bin Essa Al Khalifa said the award highlights the kingdom’s achievements in fostering entrepreneurial opportunities, and that the award winners will benefit from a range of development and funding programmes, business coaching schemes, office space and growth plans.
