Finance and National Economy Minister Shaikh Salman bin Khalifa Al Khalifa has stressed the importance of harnessing all the efforts to enhance the spirit of joint teamwork.
It is the basis for success in overcoming various challenges, including the global economic and social challenges caused by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Shaikh Salman added.

Shaikh Salman said that Team Bahrain, led by His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the Crown Prince, and Prime Minister, put in place a strategy to combat the pandemic and step up the vaccination campaign.
He pointed out that the Kingdom of Bahrain has ranked first globally in the Nikkei COVID-19 Recovery Index for November 2021, following a drop in active cases, increase in vaccination rollout, and continued adherence to health precautionary measures aimed at mitigating the virus.
The minister stressed the importance of the forum, commending the participation of experts and thinkers who discussed geostrategic threats resulting from the pandemic.
DERASAT Board of Trustees’ Chairman Dr Shaikh Abdulla bin Ahmed Al Khalifa announced the launch of the Global Network for Women in Think Tanks to prepare women to assume leadership positions in think tanks.
