Its position has been further strengthened by the democratic reforms initiated by His Majesty the King Shaikh Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa.
The archipelago, located in the heart of the Arabian Gulf, consists of 33 islands with a combined area of 676 sq km. With a population of over 650,000, Bahrain is a peaceful and stable country, ripe for investment with one of the most diversified economies in the region. It boasts, among other things, a strong infrastructure, including a modern telecommunications backbone, an advanced roads network, a solid education system and a modern airport.
In addition to its substantial oil and natural gas revenues, it is a major aluminum exporter and an international banking centre. It is also an important business and family tourist destination with a host of hotels, shopping malls, convention centers and other first class facilities. Also of interest to many visitors is the country's rich history, especially the ancient Delmon Civilization.
