The annual global event, hosted by countries including the US, UK, China, Italy, Brazil and Russia, brings thousands of entrepreneurs, investors, researchers, and policymakers from more than 170 countries to identify new ways of helping founders start and scale new ventures around the world.

Our sustained efforts in the private sector are placing Bahrain among the most advanced countries in the region, an ideal gateway to the $1.6 trillion Gulf market.”
