The total registered investments in Bahrain’s seven industrial zones have reached $3.7 billion. This was revealed by the Commerce and Industry Minister, His Excellency Abdullah Fakhro, as he addressed an inquiry submitted by Shura Council member Khalid Al Maskati.

The Minister said the zones currently house 851 industrial plots, 91% of which are leased. Only 9% of the total area remains available.
