On 15 March, the Vice Dean of the College of Administrative Sciences, Dr Ramzi Nekhili, along with five of our students attended an annual forum organised by the American Chamber of Commerce Bahrain (AmCham Bahrain). The Forum, which aims to promote the expansion of trade and investment between the markets of the MENA region and the United States, focused on SMEs: Unlocking Economic Potential in the MENA Region.
Participants benefited from a series of high-level discussions and commentary on opportunities and effective strategies for business development including coverage of key topics such as:
SME’s as key drivers of economic development in the MENA region; the Regional SME Ecosystem: A Fresh look at Thriving Techniques; SME Financing Opportunities and Export Support Programmes; and the integration of regional SMEs into the supply chain of U.S. and multinational companies in the region.
Participating in such forum added a great value to our students in exposing their knowledge to a high-level of business practices.
