Efforts to boost trading in Bahrain have been focused on corporate structuring, through a plan that includes overhauled regulation and a restructuring of the Bahrain Bourse to allow it to act with greater speed and flexibility. Initial public offerings are set to increase as moves toward privatisation continue, while small and medium-sized enterprises are on course to benefit from new listing procedures such as increased use of online trading and improved regulation and trading rules for the bourse.

This chapter includes an interview with Fouad Rashid, Director, Bahrain Bourse.
