Oxford Business Group (OBG) unveils its dedicated team for the highly-anticipated “The Report: Bahrain 2024,” a forthcoming in-depth analysis of Bahrain’s multifaceted economic landscape.
The report comes at a crucial juncture for Bahrain’s economy, which is marked by impressive growth and diversification. OBG’s research will delve into Bahrain’s economic trajectory, focusing on key areas of interest. This includes economic growth, budget deficit reduction strategies, non-oil sector developments, economic reform plans to stimulate growth and foreign investment, investment incentives such as the Golden Licence, Bahrain’s emergence as a fintech hub, and opportunities in the tourism sector.
Bahrain has positioned itself as a thriving fintech hub, attracting both domestic and foreign investment. The regulatory environment, including initiatives like the Regulatory Sandbox, has nurtured innovation and positioned Bahrain as a significant player in the fintech space. This, in turn, has attracted foreign investments and nurtured a vibrant ecosystem of startups and tech companies.
The newly appointed team comprises two key members. Ms. Kseniia Poralova, who assumes the role of Country Director, brings a robust international background and excellence in performance management, international sales, and project leadership. Her multilingual proficiency and professional acumen in Bahrain make her a global presence in the world of business and international affairs. Joining her is Mr. Kevin Graham, who takes on the role of Editorial Manager. His significant regional experience and insights into Bahrain’s economic landscape position him as a valuable asset to the team.
Kseniia Poralova expressed that she is humbled to lead an energetic team that is dedicated to uncovering the nuances of Bahrain’s economic evolution.
“We are committed to unravelling Bahrain’s growth narrative, from its visionary economic diversification to pioneering digital initiatives. At this pivotal juncture in Bahrain’s progress, our project seeks to provide essential insights, connecting international investors with the array of opportunities available in this dynamic economy,” she added.
Jana Treeck, OBG’s Managing Director for the Middle East, expressed that Bahrain’s strategic initiatives, investment incentives, and visionary reforms have positioned the kingdom as a compelling destination for investors.
“Kseniia and Kevin bring invaluable expertise to this crucial phase of our operations in Bahrain, focusing on the untapped potential in this vibrant market. I’m sure their expert knowledge and understanding of the Gulf will serve them well on this landmark project, which will undoubtedly be of interest to business leaders keen to learn more about Bahrain’s many investment opportunities,” Treeck said.
