Bahrain Chamber unveiled plans yesterday to boost food security and projects to support the Kingdom’s health, education and other vital sectors.
Waleed Kanoo, the Head of the Committees Steering Group and vice-Treasurer, said the Chamber would encourage the private sector here to establish a food packaging and distribution factory and a manufacturing plant in the coming years.
The Chamber, he said, also aims to come up with projects in the education sector to help meet the job market demand.
He also revealed that the Chamber intends to commission a regulatory authority for the contracting sector and hold studies on the health sector.
The studies will focus on the impact of the National Health Insurance Program “Sehati” on the private sector and the shortage of health cadres in specific sectors.
The developments emerged as the sector committees of the Bahrain Chamber discussed their two-year action plans in the presence of the board of directors headed by Chairman Sameer Nass.
The plans by the ten sector committees, Kanoo said, aims at enhancing coordination and cooperation among committees and keeping members of the executive and the administrative body informed of the goals and objectives.
In this regard, Kanoo underlined the role of the committees in translating the Chamber’s vision and goals into actionable plans to help revitalise the private sector and streamline its endeavours.
