The Labour Fund Tamkeen announced its support for Bahraini employees and their career advancement at Svitzer Bahrain, a leading provider of towing and maritime pilotage services in the Kingdom.

Falling under Tamkeen's Wage Increment Support program, the initiative is part of a broader plan unveiled in November of last year to bolster Bahraini career development in the labor market.

This collaboration, benefiting 50 Bahraini employees at Svitzer Bahrain, will foster the growth of Bahrain's logistics services industry through the nurturing of local talent.

The sector offers promising career prospects for Bahrainis, with approximately 38,000 employees constituting 6.7% of the Kingdom's workforce.

Tamkeen Chief Executive, Maha Abdulhameed Mofeez said, “The logistics services sector is one of Bahrain’s key industries, and a vital contributor to the nation’s economic growth, particularly for the private sector, and we are keen to facilitate its sustained development.”

Svitzer Bahrain General Manager Mohammed Taher added, “This partnership underscores Svitzer Bahrain's dedication to nurturing Bahraini talent, whose contributions have been instrumental in the company's success in the Kingdom."
