Bahrain Water Report Q3 2014

BMI View: Bahrain's water sector is continuing its program of reform and is increasingly open to foreigndirect investment. The process is tentative, with Crown Prince Salman, appointed as deputy prime ministerin 2013, hopefully able to promote a conciliatory agenda and push for economic reform. The country'swater infrastructure remains in need of extensive expansion and modernisation, and this is likely to remaina priority for the Bahrain authorities. In February 2014, it was announced Bahrain will begin projectsworth nearly USD4.4bn to upgrade its infrastructure, particularly in the water and power sectors. Thisbodes well for our sector outlook over the medium term.

The March 2013 elevation of the reformist-inclined Crown Prince Salman Bin Hamad al-Khalifa, to thepost of deputy prime minister, suggests a shift in favour of the pro-reform elements within government. Theincumbent prime minister, Salman's uncle Khalifa bin Salman, on the other hand, is seen as a bulwark ofconservatism and has opposed reform historically. The move does not necessarily mean that Salman isbecoming more powerful, but his elevation may prove to represent a positive development for the politicaland economic framework in Bahrain.
