Speaking of the new partnerships with MEET ICT and BITEX, H.E. Dr. Ebrahim Mohammed Janahi, Chief Executive of Tamkeen, said that they are committed to providing all necessary support to private sector businesses. The ultimate objective is to help them expand to increase their contribution to the Kingdom’s economy.

He added: “Through its strategy for the next three years, Tamkeen is proceeding to activate the support programmes provided to individuals and the private sector within the framework of implementing Bahrain Vision 2030.”
