Cost Competitive

 

The cost of doing business in Bahrain is relatively low, approx. 40% lower than Dubai and Qatar*. Basic costs such as rents for offices and industrial land are lower than elsewhere in the region. The combination of subsidies and privatisation in the utilities sectors, mean that electricity, gas and water costs are highly competitive. And with low living costs, wages are also highly competitive.
