One such initiative is the E-Commerce Facilitation solution offered by none other than Export Bahrain! This forward-looking solution aims to enable businesses to showcase their products and services on renowned e-commerce platforms, fostering international market connections.

“Our goal is to sustain exporters’ activities by aligning them with the digitalization and e-commerce trends, ultimately helping Bahraini businesses access international marketplaces,” says Fatima Mahdi, Business Development Manager at Export Bahrain.

Empowering Exporters for Digital Success

The E-Commerce Facilitation program comes with a set of clear objectives aimed at empowering Bahraini exporters in the digital era. It seeks to sustain export activities, ensuring they resonate with the growing demand for digitalization and e-commerce. As more businesses worldwide embrace online sales channels, this initiative ensures that Bahraini enterprises do not lag behind.

Additionally, the program facilitates both B2B and B2C transactions, offering small vendors a channel to attract customer traffic. This is particularly beneficial for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) looking to access international marketplaces and expand their reach.

A New Era of Global Trade with Alibaba Partnership

In a groundbreaking move, Export Bahrain has partnered with Alibaba,  leading platform for global business-to-business (B2B) e-commerce, to boost global trade  and enhance its E-Commerce Facilitation solution, marking the first time such an initiative is happening in Bahrain. This collaboration significantly boosts Export Bahrain’s mission to promote local products internationally, providing Bahraini businesses with unprecedented access to one of the world’s largest e-commerce platforms.

This partnership with Alibaba supports Export Bahrain’s objectives by enabling local businesses to tap into Alibaba’s vast global network, providing a streamlined process for listing products, ensuring compliance with international standards, and offering Bahraini exporters enhanced visibility and increased opportunities for global sales.

Unlocking the Potential of Bahraini Exporters

Export Bahrain’s E-Commerce Facilitation program offers an array of resources to its customers to enhance their online presence and reach. These include:

Export Bahrain’s program helps businesses understand the minimum requirements for listing their products on these platforms, ensuring they can effectively showcase their offerings to a global audience.

That’s not all! Export Bahrain introduces a new service to further boost exporters with Build Your Store, by assisting export-ready Bahrain-based businesses in developing their own online store, offering support from IT solutions to integrated shipping options. These services align with Export Bahrain’s objectives that emphasize on sustaining exporters’ activities in line with digitalization and e-commerce demand, encouraging digital transformation among Bahrain-based businesses, facilitating B2B and B2C transactions for increased customer traffic, and of course, support Bahraini businesses to access global markets digitally!
