Manama, Kingdom of Bahrain: Major businesses located in the southwest of Bahrain formed a new working group to explore areas for cooperation and collaboration.

They were welcomed by Edamah CEO Amin Al Arrayed, who hosted the gathering and opened proceedings by outlining the interconnection between the companies and how cooperative interaction would benefit all.

The southern region, home to major automotive, entertainment, and tourism destinations, is currently undergoing a transformation. The business leaders undertook to meet every quarter, and to appoint representatives to meet monthly. The entities will share their respective annual calendars to coordinate efforts and will explore joint activities for the region, such as events, shuttle services between the venues, and special packages for visitors.

The gathering represents a determination by the collective heads to support each other’s assets, to succeed with transparency, to establish regular communication between companies ensuring all are appraised of plans and deliverables, and to coordinate their activities so as to complement competencies and enhance the customer experience.
