Bahrain British Business Forum hosts annual Christmas lunch
Bahrain British Business Forum hosted its annual Christmas lunch for its members and their guests. The British Deputy Ambassador to Bahrain Stuart Summers and more than 150 BBBF members attended the festive networking lunch at the Diplomat Radisson Blu Hotel yesterday.
At the event, BBBF Chairman Khalid Al Zayani gave his end of year address to the forum members, highlighting the many successful events and activities organised during the year. “At the heart of the BBBF’s mission is to enhance the economic interests of both the UK and Bahrain in a favourable business environment.
We enjoy an outstanding working relationship with the British Embassy and the Trade & Investment teams to achieve these objectives,” said Al Zayani. Al Zayani shared some of the forum’s plans for the beginning of the new year, saying the BBBF will continue to bring to the forefront the agenda of topics related to doing business in Bahrain.
2020 will be a special year for the BBBF as the forum will be celebrating its 25th anniversary with numerous events planned throughout the year to commemorate this milestone. The new year will begin with a strong line up of guest speakers, with Roddy Drummond scheduled for the first networking lunch on 21 January 2020 followed by Kamal bin Ahmed Mohamed, the Minister of Transportation & Telecommunications on 18 February 2020.
