Kingdom of Bahrain

Bahrain has roots deep in the past, going back to more than 5000 years, as it was home to the civilizations: Dilmun, Tylos, and Awal. Throughout history, it was called “the Land of Immortality” or “the Great Paradise” as it was known for fresh water springs and palm tree fields. Bahrain was a vital link between civilizations, such as the Phoenicians in the Levant, Mesopotamia in ancient Iraq, the Nile Valley in Ancient Egypt. Excavations and historic evidence prove Bahrain to be a commercial hub and a sea transit point between East and West.

When HM King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa came into reign in 1999, Bahrain entered a new era of reform and development within a constitutional monarchy, in line with the National Action Charter and the amended constitution of 2002. Bahrain have thus made pioneering achievements in development, as well as advanced and continuous political and democratic reforms, and positive developments within laws and constitutional institutions, which gave Bahrain a prominent position regionally and internationally.
