US-Bahrain Free Trade Agreement (FTA)


The recently enacted US Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with the Kingdom of Bahrain has established a favorable framework for American firms to conduct business on equal footing locally.  Additional in-country associated benefits such as lower re-export costs and intra-Gulf free trade and tariff incentives provide a strategic advantage for companies looking to establish regional manufacturing, servicing and distribution facilities in the region. Likewise, existing FTA’s with and between the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), European and Asian countries combined with the Arabian Gulf’s proximity to Asia, Europe and North Africa, provide great opportunity for global distribution from Bahrain.
