Bahrain Infrastructure Report 2016

Bahrain Infrastructure Report 2016

BMI View: Bahrain saw an uptick in construction over late 2014 and growth for the year came in higherthan forecast, at a robust 7.3%. Growth prospects for 2015 and 2016 are more subdued, as governmentspending comes under increasing pressure from falling global oil prices and private investor interestremains hampered by ongoing political insecurity. The key focus remains on residential construction asBahrain addresses the shortfall in social housing capacity, as well as transport infrastructure, particularlyconnections with neighbouring Saudi Arabia. These developments remain heavily reliant on externalfunding and as the GCC investment programme slows we expect growth in Bahrain's construction sector tostagnate over the latter half of the forecast period.
