The manufacturing sector is the second-largest contributor to non-oil GDP, behind financial services. Some of the kingdom’s key industrial players have expanded their production capacity in recent years, significantly bolstering heavy industry and downstream potential, most notably in the aluminium segment. Aluminium is Bahrain’s biggest non-oil export, and Aluminium Bahrain is integral to overall industrial performance. Strong logistics infrastructure is integrated with a network of industrial and free zones, where foreign and local investors enjoy a range of regionally competitive incentives.

This chapter contains interviews with Ali Al Baqali, CEO, Aluminium Bahrain; and Abdulwahab Al Sadoun, Secretary-General, Gulf Petrochemicals and Chemicals Association.
